Most Popular DAIC Content in November 2016

TCT 2016, TCT.16, main arena, late breaking trials, transcatheter cardiovascular therapeutics

There were several hot topics that came out of the 2016 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual meeting Oct. 29 - Nov. 2, which made this month's top 20 list, including several videos. Number 4 on the list of content was the result of the EXCEL Trial key TCT late-breaker, which showed stenting is equal in outcomes to surgery for the first time, when using one of the latest generation drug-eluting stents. 

December 5, 2016 — Here is the list of the top 20 most popular pieces of content on the Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) magazine website from the month of November based on website analytics:

Angiography shows a stenotic lesion in the mid right coronary artery, undilatable by standard high-pressure balloon angioplasty (inset, arrowheads). (B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired before IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in A) demonstrate severe near-circumferential calcification in the area of the stenosis. (C) Angiography demonstrates improvement in the area of stenosis after IVL lithoplasty.

Figure 2: Angiography demonstrates a stenotic lesion in the mid right coronary artery, undilatable by standard high-pressure balloon angioplasty (inset, arrowheads). (B) Optical coherence tomography (OCT) cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired before IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in A) demonstrate severe near-circumferential calcification (double-headed arrow) in the area of the stenosis. (C) Angiography demonstrates improvement in the area of stenosis after IVL (inset; note the cavitation bubbles generated by IVL [black arrows]). (D) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-IVL and coregistered to the OCT lens (white arrow in C) demonstrate multiple calcium fractures and large acute luminal gain. (E) Angiography demonstrates complete stent expansion with the semicompliant stent balloon (inset) without the need for high-pressure noncompliant balloon inflation. (F) OCT cross-sectional (top) and longitudinal (bottom) images acquired post-stenting and coregistered to the OCT lens (arrow in E) demonstrate further fracture displacement (arrow), with additional increase in the acute area gain (5.17 mm2), resulting in full stent expansion and minimal malapposition.
