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).

This is an example of artificial intelligence automation for cardiac MRI using an AI app from TeraRecon's Envoy AI marketplace. The GE MRI image has bee countoured, anatomy labeled and all quantification automated by the AI, greatly reducing post-processing time. See this and other new AI imaging technologies from the 2019 RSNA meeting.

Abbott makes the Xience stent used in the trial, which compared equally with long-term CABG surgical outcomes.  In early December 2019, leaders of the European Association for Cardiothoracic Surgery (EACTS) withdrew their support for European practice guidelines that endorse the use of coronary stents in many patients with left main coronary artery disease.
