Protected PCI: Panel Discussion of Data and Best Practices in High-Risk Patients
In this roundtable discussion, John Lasala, MD of Washington University in St. Louis interviews Bill O’Neill, MD (Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, MI), Bill Lombardi, MD (University of Washington, Seattle, WA), and Jeff Moses, MD (Columbia University, New York, NY) on data regarding high-risk patients undergoing Protected PCI. During this interview, Dr. Moses provides an extensive overview of Protected PCI indications, while Dr. Lombardi provides his insight into the importance of maintaining hemodynamic stability in high-risk PCI.
The team also discusses the advantages of complete revascularization and approaches to specific anatomical challenges, such as chronic total occlusions, during a Protected PCI procedure. Finally, Dr. O’Neill discusses the results of the PROTECT II study in comparison to findings from the SYNTAX trial.
