Drug Coated Balloons in De Novo Lesions
For Part 4, episode 8 , we join Dr Latib and Dr Eccleshall to discuss the current evidence in the industry for Drug Coated Balloons in de novo lesions, as well as DCB in small vessel disease and DCB in large vessels. In episode 9, discover the use of DCB in de novo lesions with Dr Azeem Latib and Dr Simon Eccleshall, whilst also taking the decision on whether a lesion is a good one for DCB only. We also discuss the approach for sizing of the lesion for DCB and consider a check list for lesion preparation and procedure success assessment.
