EASTBOURNE registry finished the enrollment
EASTBOURNE registry finished the enrollment a few days ago, with the terrific number of 2100 patients reached: this is the largest coronary DCB study ever done.
EASTBOURNE is a prospective registry and will describe the immediate and long term performance of the novel Magic Touch sirolimus-coated balloon for any coronary application. Interesting, this is an investigator-driven study without bias or inferences from the industry.
I want to congratulate each investigator of the study and Prof Antonio Colombo, co-chairman of the study.

PICCOLETO II published in JACC Int.
It is my privilege to announce that PICCOLETO II RCT has just been published in JACC Int, November 2020.
For the first time, a DCB (Elutax SV/Emperor) outperformed a new-gen DES in terms of angiographic endpoint, in the native vessel disease setting.
