Intracranial arteriosclerotic disease is a relevant cause of ischemic stroke worldwide with a high recurrence rate despite best medical treatment. Following the SAMMPRIS trial, endovascular treatment has remained a second-line therapy. Meanwhile, there has been significant advances in device technology. SeQuent Please NEO is a novel polymer-free, drug-coated (paclitaxel/iopromide) balloon (DCB) primarily designed for cardiology. Because of its high flexibility and pushability, it may also be suitable for intracranial use. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and safety of SeQuent Please NEO DCB in symptomatic intracranial severe stenosis.

The optimal revascularization therapy for in-stent restenosis (ISR) of femoropopliteal arteries represents a matter of debate. We investigated the outcomes of patients treated with drug-coated balloon...
To report our experience of angioplasty with Lutonix (Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc., Tempe, AZ) drug-coated balloon (DCB) for the treatment of failing arteriovenous fistulas (AVF).
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with a drug coated balloon (DCB) is a novel treatment which seeks to acutely dilate a coronary stenosis and deliver an anti-proliferative drug to the vessel wa...
The authors sought to investigate the midterm efficacy and safety of drug-coated balloon (DCB) in the treatment of severe femoropopliteal artery disease (FPAD).
The purpose of this study was to determine the radiation exposure of primary interventionalist's different body parts during endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) procedures and aortoiliac percutaneous ...
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...
The investigators' study aims is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) with paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) at venous anastomotic stenosis of a...
The purpose of this study is to assess safety and the inhibition of restenosis of the CVI Paclitaxel-coated PTA Balloon Catheter in the treatment of de-novo occluded/stenotic or reoccluded...
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...
For years, first-line treatment of AVFs stenoses has been percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. However, restenosis and reintervention rates remain incredibly high and occur, according to...
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.
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.
Dilatation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
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).
