Other peripheral interventions

Find all the latest content on other peripheral interventions published on this website.

Increasingly effective approaches to peripheral interventions have expanded the range of topics covered in this speciality. From the brain, implicated in subclavian approaches, to the digestive arteries, as the field expands, information is critical both concerning the latest research to the development of new clinical techniques, all of which can be found in this section…

World Heart Day 2017: 29 September

Born in 2000, World Heart Day is an initiative of the World Heart Federation. All over the World – in nearly 100 countries - member organisations will set up thousands of educational activities and events in order everyone feels involved in protecting themselves from cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide killing 17.5 million a year.

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) .

Management of patients with multilevel atherosclerosis

11 Jul 2017 - From EUROPCR 2017

While we are used to treating coronary artery disease, interventional cardiologists need to keep in mind that many of these patients have a silent form of vascular involvement because of atherosclerosis. S. Redwood, F. Ribichini and M. Roffi focus on this complex topic and the implications of taking charge of patients with diffuse disease. What current evidence exists in this often older and sicker population? On what level should management begin? Why is the best treatment one that is provided by a clinician working with a team of dedicated specialists in a “patient-centred” approach? Learn the details here…

How to select the appropriate treatment for long and calcified superficial femoral artery lesion

From EUROPCR 2017

How do you manage an obstruction to the superficial femoral artery? Join E. Stabile and R. Lorenzoni as they discuss the details of this complex situation. What is the appropriate definition for a long lesion? What new devices, such as drug-eluting balloons or DES are now available and why is advance preparation of the vessel, such as debulking, an often necessary and recommended step? Watch now…

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...
