bailout stenting

bailout stenting

A popular term for emergency coronary artery stent placement for abrupt or threatened artery closure caused by arterial dissection after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.

exploring how endovascular treatment with the Diamondback Orbital Atherectomy System may have advantages in modifying calcified lesions to allow lower pressure adjunctive balloon, less need for bailout stenting and improved patient outcomes.
Freedom from bailout stenting of 92 percent compared to 16 percent
Freedom from restenosis or retreatment, including the need for bailout stenting, of 73 percent versus 8 percent at 6 months
principal investigator of the COMPLIANCE 360x study noted, "The COMPLIANCE 360x study demonstrated that orbital atherectomy is superior to balloon angioplasty in its ability to achieve a good angiographic result with markedly decreased need for bailout stenting.
Aggarwala commented, "The CONFIRM II study validates the use of orbital technology in restoring flow by changing lesions compliance, thus allowing low-pressure balloon angioplasty with limited complications and reduced need for bailout stenting.
By modifying calcified lesions first, the Diamondback 360ae allows use of a lower pressure adjunctive balloon therapy, and reduces the need for bailout stenting with improved longer-term patient outcomes.
Data Presented at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Meeting Shows 360-Percent Superior Procedural Success Rate, with 91 Percent Less Bailout Stenting
The acute data from the COMPLIANCE 360x trial shows treatment with the Diamondback 360x leads to better luminal gain, improved lesion compliance (as reflected in lower balloon pressures post treatment with the Diamondback 360x) and a marked reduction in bailout stenting.
Traditionally, patients with PAD have been treated with high-pressure balloon angioplasty, which is associated with a high rate of dissection and bailout stenting.
5), or TLR (including the need for bailout stenting at procedure time).
