Learning with Clinical Cases:

Rotablator™ in Fibro-Calcified Lesions

In this clinical case, Dr. Price ensures optimal revascularization in a complex case with extremely fibro-calcific plaque, with the use of Rotational Atherectomy (RA) technique. RA allowed for substantial plaque modification that enabled successful balloon predilatation and stent deployment.

Lowest Rates of Stent Thrombosis in Real-World SCAAR Registry

SYNERGY™ Stent reported lowest rates of ST in real-world SCAAR registry

In this real-world registry1 of over 83,000 patients the SYNERGY stent’s thin strut design and bioabsorbable polymer coating show a trend of lower definite stent thrombosis compared to the other bioabsorbable polymer and permanent polymer drug-eluting stents.

SYNERGY™ Low Event Rates after Early DAPT Discontinuation in Complex Patients

Belfast study

In a retrospective, single-center analysis of 100 extremely complex patients from Belfast, Ireland, the use of the SYNERGY™ stent allowed for early discontinuation of DAPT, without an increase in the incidence of stent thrombosis, MI and cardiac death at 12 Months.
