“Here is the list of the most popular articles and videos on the Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) magazine website from the month of October, based on website analytics of the month’s 163,117 pageviews:”
“Biotronik’s Orsiro drug-eluting stent (DES) demonstrated high long-term safety and clinical performance according to 60-month follow-up data presented during the 2017 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Annual Conference (TCT 2017), Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in Denver.”
“Crossing the occlusion with a guidewire is often the most challenging part of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and there is debate about the optimal initial crossing strategy during the procedure.”
“The treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR) remains challenging in clinical practice. The DARE (Drug-eluting bAlloon for in-stent Restenosis) multicenter, randomized clinical trial evaluated the performance of the B. Braun Sequent Please drug-eluting balloon (DEB) vs. the Abbott Xience everolimus-eluting stent (EES) in patients with ISR.”
“Five-year results from the PREVAIL Trial comparing left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) with the Boston Scientific Watchman device to warfarin in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation found that the first composite co-primary endpoint of stroke, systemic embolism (SE), or cardiovascular/unexplained death did not achieve noninferiority.”
“Results from the prospective, randomized, multicenter CULPRIT-SHOCK trial found an initial strategy of culprit lesion-only percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) reduces the composite of 30-day mortality and/or severe renal failure in patients with multivessel disease and cardiogenic shock complicating acute myocardial infarction.”
“Analysis of the PARTNER 2A trial and the SAPIEN-3 Intermediate Risk registry found transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) to be highly cost-effective compared with surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in intermediate surgical risk patients with aortic stenosis.”
“The double kissing (DK) crush two-stent technique was associated with a lower rate of target lesion failure at one year compared with provisional stenting (PS) in the treatment of true distal bifurcation lesions of the left main artery, according to a large-scale randomized trial.”
“OrbusNeich reported results from the REDUCE trial in the Late-Breaking Clinical Trial session at the 29th annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium, Oct. 29-Nov. 2 in Denver. The results provide fresh insights into the optimal treatment of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) using the COMBO Dual Therapy Stent.”
“Edwards Lifesciences Corp. announced new data demonstrating substantial economic advantages of the Edwards Sapien 3 transcatheter aortic heart valve for patients suffering from severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) who are at intermediate risk for open-heart surgery.”
