Meta-analysis finds a higher risk of death in the long term when paclitaxel-coated devices are used in the leg


Konstantinos Katsanos (Patras, Greece) tells Interventional News about new data from a meta-analysis that has been published in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA) that suggest there is an increased risk of death at two and five years following the use of paclitaxel-coated balloons and stents in the femoropopliteal artery.

This video interview was conducted at the VEITHsymposium 2018 and was under embargo until publication of the study by JAHA.
