Summary

In this presentation, professor Tony Gershlick discusses the use of angiosculpt balloon in interventional cardiology. Drug-eluting stent under-expansion was common, often falling short of even minimum standards of stent expansion. Pre-treatment with the AngioSculpt was safe and enhanced stent expansion, minimizing the difference between predicted and achieved stent dimensions. In the era of DES, pre-dilatation with the AngioSculpt may result in a reduced risk of stent thrombosis and a larger stent CSA at follow-up.
