|Cardiovascular Systems Announces Schedule of Events for New Cardiovascular Horizons 2012|
Data will be shared demonstrating the effectiveness of CSI’s Diamondback™ Orbital Atherectomy System in treating peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Studies point toward potentially fewer adverse effects and freedom from restenosis with CSI’s system. Additionally, data shows lower dissection rates, reduced bail-out stenting and less vessel disruption, which preserves treatment options in the future.
NCVH Abstract Discussion:
Orbital Atherectomy Below-the-Knee
WHAT: Dr. Jihad Mustapha, Interventional Cardiologist,
Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) patients frequently present with severely calcified tibial stenoses, resulting in starvation of blood flow to the feet, continuation of limb pain at rest, and exacerbation of non-healing wounds. These small, below-the-knee arteries are challenging to treat, and often a precursor to amputation. 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. This presentation will concentrate on the system’s unique method of operation which combines centrifugal force with differential sanding, prevents vessel wall damage and preserves the media, leading to better, more durable outcomes. The abstract will also highlight a case study utilizing the orbital technology for below-the-knee treatment.
NCVH Abstract Discussion:
Cost-consequence Comparison of Orbital Atherectomy vs. Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty for Treatment of Calcified Femoropopliteal Lesions: Results from a Multicenter, Randomized Clinical Study
The COMPLIANCE 360° trial is a prospective, randomized study that examines whether CSI’s Diamondback Orbital Atherectomy System can achieve satisfactory acute and long-term results without the need for stent placement in lesions above the knee. In the COMPLIANCE 360° study, 50 patients were enrolled at nine U.S. sites. The Diamondback System is a minimally invasive orbital atherectomy system indicated for use as therapy in patients with PAD – blockages in leg arteries.
Data comparing economic factors such as procedure hospital charges, procedure length, length of stay, and stent and balloon utilization will be reviewed in evaluating orbital atherectomy versus percutaneous transluminal angioplasty at twelve months.
CSI Lunch Symposium
WHAT: Industry thought leaders will share their expertise on topics associated with PAD during a lunch symposium hosted by CSI. The symposium, titled “Fighting the Challenges of Complex Calcium with Simple Physics,” will cover complications of calcium, unique challenges for treating patients with CLI, changing compliance for optimal outcomes, safety, efficiency and cost effectiveness in office-based lab settings.
