Balloon Angioplasty vs. Optimal Atherectomy Trial. A trial that investigated whether DCA is better than balloon angioplasty for de novo lesions in native coronary arteries
Primary endpoints MACE, TLR—time to relapse at 1 year
Conclusion DCA followed by aggressive PTCA results in significantly increased lumen diameters and decreased rates of restenosis at 6 months than PTCA alone; despite angiographic improvement, rate of clinical events at 1 year is not significantly different between optimal DCA and PTCA


Cardiology An ongoing study–Balloon Angioplasty vs Optimal Atherectomy on the efficacy of aggressive atherectomy as a means of improving the short-term results of angioplasty. Cf CAVEAT.

Patient discussion about BOAT

Q. I love to travel in this boat Anyone knows, what makes this happen? I am in my first trimester and I am happy with my pregnancy and so far it’s been a smooth sailing boat. I love to travel in this boat till I reach the destination. But one thing that troubles me is that I tend to sleep more. Anyone knows, what makes this happen, please give some input….

A. Hey! It’s a good sign that you tend to sleep more. It is a common symptom among majority of the pregnant women and that too in the first trimester. The need for excess sleep is caused by the newly raised levels of progesterone, which is normal during pregnancy. This hormone helps to regulate the reproductive cycle. This hormone generally makes you drowsy and is the need for extra nap. Enjoy with your pregnancy. Your are perfectly alright. Remember to grab short nap whenever you can and it is absolutely harmless. You will have a different sleeping pattern while in the 2nd and 3rd trimester.
