The two top DAIC stories in September included the use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) to perform echocardiograms of COVID-19 patients rather than wheeling in larger systems that are more difficult to sanitize. The second top story was on a new trial for Abbott's bioresorbable stent for below-the-knee (BTK) peripheral artery disease lesions. This is a resumption of bioresorbable stent clinical research since the Absorb stent was taken off the market in 2017.
