The largest gender specific OCT analysis demonstrates excellent stent expansion and MSA post-IVL with impressive procedural safety in both women and men.
The long-term gender analysis of coronary IVL finds sustained positive clinical outcomes with excellent safety in both women and men at one year.
Some of us know the data. Some don’t. The question once you do is where we go from here to bridge the gender inequality gap? To help address this question, here is a great discussion hosted by SCAI Conversations in Interventional Cardiology with Drs. Alexandra Lansky, J. Dawn Abbott, Jennifer Tremmel, Roxana Mehran, and Suzanne Baron on the recently JSCAI published “Expert Consensus on Sex Specific Considerations in Myocardial Revascularization.”
JSCAI recently published an “Expert Consensus on Sex Specific Considerations in Myocardial Revascularization” which highlights gender disparities in coronary disease, guides future research priorities and suggests IVL as a potential first-line therapy in females with calcified lesions.Learn more
