Cath Lab

The catheterization lab channel includes content related to interventional technologies for coronary and peripheral artery disease (PAD). Other cath lab transcatheter device technologies covered on this page included percutaneous treatment for stroke, venous interventions, heart valves, hypertensionheart failure and percutenous coronary interventions (PCI).

Two devices where safety is being called into question based on clinical data that is being questioned. The Boston Scientific Eluvia paclitaxel-eluting peripheral stent is among the devices included in a study questioning long-term safety of paclitaxel. The Abiomed Impella RP had higher than expected mortality in its post-approval study, possibly due to poor patient selection and implanting the device too late to aid the patient.
