Is paclitaxel associated with higher mortality? The DCB in periphery conundrum: my perspective

About one year ago, a metanalysis conducted by Dr. Katsanos and Coll. showed an increase in mortality following the use of paclitaxel-coated balloons / stents when used for femoro-popliteal PTA. The whole sector was evidently shocked as a result to this metanalysis, and many actions (some of them absolutely unjustified) have been taken since then.

After one year, after a necessary cooling off period and further analyses, it is time for me to take a clear position on the matter.

Therefore,  we are presenting our point of view regarding the topic, as expressed in some published editorials.

Today we are presenting the second one:
