Expert Talks

The COPS study cutting ballon to optimize predilatation for stentings
Dr. Antonio Colombo

The COPS study cutting ballon to optimize predilatation for stentings Dr. Antonio Colombo

In this short video Dr. Antonio Colombo will present the Cutting balloon to Optimize Predilatation for Stenting study.

The COPS study aims to test the hypothesis that the cutting balloon could offer a better performance over the non-compliant balloon in lesion preparation by comparing the use of high pressure cutting balloon Wolverine against non-compliant balloons in patients with calcified lesions.

Clinical Cases

Calcified distal left main in a CHIP patient, treated with Wolverine and Megatron under IVUS guidance
Dr. Pablo Salinas

Calcified distal left main in a CHIP patient, treated with Wolverine and Megatron under IVUS guidance

Dr. Pablo Salina presents the case of a CHIP patient with a calcified distal left main, treated with Wolverine and Megatron under IVUS guidance. You will learn about the:

  • Use of Wolverine in ostial, focal deep calcium
  • Interpretation of IVUS imaging to choose, when feasible simple techniques for complex patients (Provisional LM-LAD stenting)
  • IVUS guided stent optimization of Megatron in LM for the best long-term outcomes
