Episode #334

VI

In this episode, host Dr. Aaron Fritts interviews Dr. Peter Soukas taking a deep dive into novel balloon technologies, appropriate uses below the knee, and how these new balloons are highly effective in treating patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI). Dr. Soukas explains how new balloon technologies can minimize the risk of dissections (therefore decreasing the need for bailout stents), create effective lumen gain in concentric and eccentric calcified lesions with minimal recoil, and keep pressures low compared to legacy products.
