Stents and scaffolds

Find all the latest content on stents and scaffolds published on this website.

Since 1986, when the first cardiovascular stent was implanted, the development of drug-eluting stents (DES) and the recent introduction of bioresorbable scaffolds have revolutionised interventional cardiology. Keep up-to-date with the latest research; evolving tools, devices and techniques; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; advances in imaging techniques as well as the use of invasive imaging and functional assessment.

Stent complications - what would you have done?

26 Jan 2018 – From AsiaPCR/SingLIVE 2018

Consult this session on stent complications if you want to learn how to manage a case if the tip of the guidewire is stuck on the stent strut after the DES has been placed, if a stent is fractured or crushed unexpectedly, or if an unexpected result after left main stenting occurs.

Getting out of complications - what would you have done?

26 Jan 2018 – From AsiaPCR/SingLIVE 2018

Consult this session if you want to learn how to manage various complications like:

- Case of massive dissection in right coronary artery induced by diagnostic catheter
- How to rescue a right coronary artery-CTO lesion with recent false lumen-implanted stents?
- Successful management of dislodged stents during PCI in patient with STEMI
- The potential hazard of a non-slip element balloon leading to stent deformation
