Dr Michael Lichtenberg (Vascular Centre Clinic Arnsberg, Arnsberg, DE) discusses the latest findings from the Prestige Pilot study.
Prestige Pilot investigates if a lesion preparation strategy with Phoenix® atherectomy before DCB (drug coated balloon) usage in patients with PAD (peripheral artery disease) Rutherford Stage 4-5 and mild/moderate/severe calcium can improve outcomes including patency and limb salvage and evaluate safety and performance of the combination therapy.
Recorded remotely from Arnsberg, 2021.
