Drug Coated Balloon

The Class 1A ESC recommendation for DCB in ISR

Based on studies which were mainly performed with SeQuent® Please/NEO coating technology (PACCOCATH®)

European Society of Cardiology

Therefore, it might be concluded that the ESC recommendation is based on the SeQuent® Please coating technology.

 

Extract from studies used in the ESC recommendations [1] referring to the coating (PACCOCATH®-Technology) of SeQuent® Please product family for the usage in in-stent restenosis (ISR) treatment:

PACCOCATH ISR I [2] and II [3]

  • Randomized Controlled Trial in a total of 108 patients shows
  • Superiority for DCB vs. POBA in BMS-ISR after 6 months [2]  and 5 years [3]
  • In-Segment LLL @ 6-month: 0.11 ± 0.44 mm [2]
  • Binary Restenosis Rate In-Segment @ 6-month: 3 / 54 (6%) [2]
  • MACE @ 5-year: 27.8% [3]
  • TLR @ 5-year: 9.3% [3]

PEPCAD II [4]

  • Randomized Controlled Trial in a total of 130 patients shows
  • As least as efficient than DES usage in BMS-ISR [4]
  • In-Segment LLL @ 6-month 0.17 ± 0.42 mm [4]
  • Binary Restenosis Rate In-Segment: 4 / 57 (7%) [4]
  • MACE @ 12-month: 9% [4]
  • TLR @ 12-month: 6% [4]

PEPCAD-DES [5]

  • Randomized Controlled Trial in a total of 110 patients demonstrates
  • Superiority for DCB vs. POBA in DES-ISR
  • In-Segment LLL @ 6-month 0.43 ± 0.61 mm [5]
  • Binary Restenosis Rate In-Segment: 17.2% [5]
  • Significant lower MACE for DCB [5]
