Luca Testa, C3 2019 – New Generation Bioabsorbable Polymer DES Versus Permanent Polymer DES?
We spoke to Dr Luca Testa (Department of Cardiology, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, Milan, Italy) at C3 2019 about new bioabsorbable versus existing permanent polymer drug-eluting stents, their potential limitations and what he expects to see in the future for these new stents, and their impact on future practice.
Speaker’s Disclosures: Luca Testa has nothing to declare in relation to this video interview.
1. Does bioabsorbable polymer drug-eluting stent (DES) technology offer a clinical improvement over a polymer DES? (0:04)
2. Long-term data for these non-polymer approaches are still scarce – what do you expect to see in the coming years, and what impact on practice might non-polymer DES approaches have? (1:53)

Gregg Stone, ACC 2023: Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair for functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure
Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) is a minimally invasive procedure that can effectively treat functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure patients. Compared to traditional surgical approaches, TEER offers benefits such as reduced hospital stay, lower risk of bleeding and infection, and faster recovery time. Additionally, TEER has been found to improve symptoms and quality of life […]
