EuroPCR 22: EASTBOURNE Registry LBCT interview

 Bernardo Cortese (Fondazione Ricerca e Innovazione Cardiovascolare, IT) discusses the main findings from the EASTBOURNE Study, that investigated the sirolimus-coated balloon in an all-comer population.

Findings are positive as regards the device’s safety and efficacy profile, with the primary endpoint of target lesion revascularization (TLR) occurring in 6% of the population.

Sirolimus coated balloon-presentation at DCB meeting in Birmingham UK

This is the short presentation for the DCB Course held in Birmingham, UK. This course, whose Director was S. Eccleshall, gathered the most experienced DCB-players worldwide. We shared our experiences and had fun – top experiences and science for the DCB fans!

EuroPCR coverage 2

This is MATRIX time @ EuroPCR 2016.

I had the privilege of presenting one of the most important subsidies of the Matrix trial, PI Marco Valgimigli, assessing the role of transradial vs. transfemoral PCI either in STEMI or NSTE-ACS patients undergoing invasive management.

Results were consistent with the main publication in Lancet last year, showing a significant benefit in terms of NACE and a strong trend in terms of improvement of MACE for the transradial approach.

EuroPCR coverage 1

This is the official TCTMD report on the late-breaking clinical trial session on BVS at the latest EuroPCR.

I am proud of being part of it, presenting the short-term data of the RAI registry. And I am also proud that our centre was the second top enroller centre in both the RAI and IT-DISAPPEARS registry!


Bivalirudin use-an update after the Matrix trial

This is the presentation I had at the CCIF meeting at Guiyang, China, April 2015.

Which is the current role of Bivalirudin in ACS patients, nowadays? Did the Matrix trial change the scenario, or created more confusion on the matter?

the role of BVS in 2015

The most widely used Biovascular Scaffold worldwide, namely Absorb, Abbott, is a real revolution in interventional cardiology. A lot of things changed after BVS became available, however we learned that, most importantly, the approach to PCI did change as well: like for DCB-PCI, it is not just like to implant a stent here!

This is the presentation I made at Stresa, a national meeting organized by AS Bongo, Novara Hospital, in May 2015.
