New ESC/ESVS Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD)
06 Sep 2017
The new joint ESC/ESVS guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD) have been profoundly updated thanks to the active collaboration between the European Society of Cardiology and the European Society for Vascular Surgery. In this document, the term ‘peripheral arterial diseases’ encompasses all arterial diseases other than coronary arteries and the aorta. In particular, the document addresses only PADs secondary to atherosclerosis, with a few exceptions in specific areas where nonatherosclerotic diseases are a frequent differential diagnosis (e.g. fibromuscular dysplasia in renal arteries) .

How to treat patients with popliteal and common femoral artery lesions
12 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
With peripheral interventions becoming more widespread, what are the challenges facing specialists in treating complex situations? C. Cook speaks with leading peripheral expert A. Micari about what he describes as “the worst part of the leg’s vascular tree”. Learn about the difficulties inherent in treating lesions in arteries subject to the forces of compression, flexion and torsion at the same time, or how restenosis has been an historic threat. What innovative devices and techniques are becoming available today that could offer a valid choice instead of surgery? What are our unmet needs and why is the field “ripe” for future developments? Watch now.
Strategies and devices for the treatment of complex aortoiliac lesions
11 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
From defining the disease, choosing the best patient and planning the intervention itself, all points are covered with peripheral experts E. Stabile and A. Sauguet in this detailed discussion. Learn why symptoms are not enough to classify your patient, why duplex echo followed by angio-CT are essential and what they tell us about anatomy, the complexity of the lesion or the amount of the calcium. Learn why planning strategy implies choosing the access route and why, in some cases, two different access sites might be required. Does device choice drive strategy as well? More here…

Transradial approach for iliac interventions
06 Jun 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
Commonly, iliac interventions are performed by femoral access…but is there safe and efficacious alternative today? Join F. Mahfoud and R. Lorenzini as they discuss the advantages – and disadvantages – of approaching from the “upper extremities” comparing closure devices and bleeding or the greater distance? Do newer generation devices address the challenges involved in radial access? What are the sizes and lengths available, or the utility of a “sheathless” catheter? What about existing trials or studies exist and how do we decide on the best approach to use? Learn the latest tips and tricks here.
EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Peripheral Interventions
20 May 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017
Atherosclerosis might be the same disease wherever it is found, our endovascular procedures may be similar, but the target organs are different – what do you need to know? Join M. Roffi and P. Musialek as they look at endovascular treatments in the common femoral artery, the role of drug-eluting balloons, reconstruction of an abdominal aortic aneurysm or complex aortoiliac endovascular repair and carotid artery stenting with the new generation of distal protection devices...
