Stenosis is a known complication in bypass vein grafts for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of drug-coated balloons (DCB) in the treatment of vein graft stenoses.
This article was published in the following journal.

Currently, there exists limited data on patient outcome following the use of drug-coated balloons to treat complex femoropopliteal arterial occlusive lesions. The aim of the present study was to inves...
True infrapopliteal aneurysms occur very rarely; the majority of reported cases are secondary to trauma or infection. We report the development of a tibio-peroneal trunk (TPT) aneurysm 6 months after ...
Background The use of radial-artery grafts for coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) may result in better postoperative outcomes than the use of saphenous-vein grafts. However, randomized, controlled...
Paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) coronary angioplasty is an alternative treatment for de-novo coronary lesions in small vessels. This study with the new Essential PCB aimed to evaluate early and mid-te...
Venous grafts are commonly used as conduits to bypass occluded arteries. Unfortunately, patency rates are limited by vein graft disease (VGD). Toll like receptors (TLRs) can be activated in vein graft...
Compare the effectiveness of drug-coated balloons to plain balloon angioplasty in reducing stenosis rates in dialysis arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs).
This is a single center, retrospective, observational cohort study to assess the safety and efficacy of drug coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty in all forms of coronary artery disease. The I...
The aim of this multicenter triple-arm randomized study is to compare two innovative techniques with the gold standard currently used and providing unsatisfactory results for the In-Stent ...
To evaluate the role of DCB angioplasty for venous anastomotic stenosis of hemodialysis graft, investigators would like to perform randomized study comparing the results of drug- coated ba...
The aim of this clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the novel Luminor® paclitaxel drug‐eluting balloon (iVascular, S.L.U., Barcelona, Spain) in inhibiting restenosi...
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
