Study of new polymer-free DFS indicates non-inferior in-stent late lumen loss at nine-months

Study of new polymer-free DFS indicates non-inferior in-stent late lumen loss at nine-months

A first-in-human study of a new polymer-free drug-filled stent, which provides controlled drug elution from an internal lumen, indicated non-inferior in-stent late lumen loss at nine-months compared with historical zotarolimus-eluting stent (Resolute) data. In addition, there was no binary restenosis, and a high degree of early stent strut coverage with minimal malapposition. [More]

Managing low-risk acute care without hospitalization appears to be safe and reduces costs

A comprehensive review of studies evaluating strategies for treating certain acute medical conditions without hospital admission finds that all four evaluated strategies appear to be safe, often improve patient and caregiver satisfaction, and reduce health care costs. [More]
Cesarean-section leaves women more vulnerable to VTE than vaginal delivery

Cesarean-section leaves women more vulnerable to VTE than vaginal delivery

Roughly one-third of all births in Europe and North America now occur via cesarean section (CS). Following any birth, women are at an increased risk for a venous thromboembolism (VTE), but it's believed that CS leaves women more vulnerable to VTE, blood clots, than vaginal delivery (VD). [More]

BBK II trial compares two commonly used stenting techniques for coronary bifurcation

BBK II trial compares two commonly used stenting techniques for coronary bifurcation

Coronary bifurcations - a type of coronary artery narrowing - are best treated with a technique known as culotte stenting, as opposed to T-and-protrusion (TAP) stenting, when there is need for a side-branch stent according to results of the BBK II (Bifurcations Bad Krozingen) trial. [More]
