BackTable / VI / Podcast / Episode #410

True Lumen Re-Entry with Pioneer Plus

with Dr. Thomas Davis

In this episode of BackTable Podcast, host Dr. Ally Behati invites interventional cardiologist Dr. Thomas Davis, Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at St. John Hospital and Medical Center, to discuss re-entry devices, with a focus on the Pioneer Plus Catheter.

Dr. Davis shares his experience in using the Pioneer Plus, an intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guided re-entry catheter in treating critical limb ischemia (CLI), especially in cases where it is difficult to stay intraluminal. He explains a novel ‘reorientation technique’, which allows proceduralists to remain in the true lumen while treating a chronic total occlusion. Dr. Davis also describes his workflow and decision points about when to reach for the catheter. To finish the episode, he covers post-procedure patient management, imaging follow up, and opportunities to learn more about treatment of peripheral vascular disease.
