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...
Drug-coated balloon technology (DCB) has recently attracted considerable interest as a promising alternative treatment option, particularly in the setting of in-stent restenosis (ISR). Opt...
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 study will enroll patients presenting with claudication, or critical limb ischemia (Rutherford Category 3- 5) and an angiographically significant (≥ 70%) native artery lesion appropr...
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...
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...
The aim of the Nanoluté registry was to observe the clinical performance of a novel sirolimus coated balloon (SCB) (Concept Medical Research Private Limited, India) for the treatment of coronary de-n...
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...
Treating coronary bifurcations remains limited by technical difficulties and suboptimal long-term outcomes, often affecting the side branch (SB). Drug-coated balloon (DCB) in SB treatment could reduce...
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 gr...
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 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).
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.
Dilation of an occluded coronary artery (or arteries) by means of a balloon catheter to restore myocardial blood supply.
