In this episode of the BackTable Podcast, host Dr. Chris Beck discusses atherectomy, laser technologies, and their use in vessel treatment with Dr. Tony Das, an interventional cardiologist practicing in Dallas, TX and one of the founding members of the VIVA Vascular Education Course in Las Vegas.
Dr. Das shares insights on the PATHFINDER registry, which is a prospective non-randomized, multicenter study to evaluate the performance and outcome of the Auryon laser atherectomy system. Their conversation explores the role of atherectomy in reducing stent usage, decreasing embolization likelihood, enhancing thrombus removal, and uncovering lesions. Dr. Das further provides recommendations for building a successful atherectomy program, utilizing laser technologies, and the importance of having ablative technology in outpatient labs. The doctors forecast future applications for artificial intelligence and remote monitoring.
In this episode, host Dr. Aaron Fritts interviews Dr. Aaron Kovaleski on good old-fashioned TV and radio marketing. Aaron is an interventional radiologist and founder of Endovascular Consultants of Colorado, who has found success in using tried and true methods of advertising to grow his practice.
In this episode, host Dr. Ally Baheti interviews interventional radiologist Dr. Saher Sabri and vascular surgeon Dr. Frank Arko about their perspectives on a July 2023 New York Times article about the ethics of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) treatment in outpatient based labs (OBLs) and ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs).
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.
In this episode, host Dr. Sabeen Dhand interviews interventional cardiologist Dr. Eric Secemsky about the role of intravascular ultrasound in lower extremity interventions, and how he published a consensus document to standardize its use across specialties and provide a framework for new users.
En este episodio de BackTable Español, Dra. Gina Landinez entrevista a Dr. Miguel Montero-Baker sobre la enfermidad arterial periférica y salvamento de extremidades en la comunidad latinoamericana.

Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging has shown benefits such as improved vessel assessment, enhanced procedural efficiency, reduced need for additional imaging and radiation exposure, and potential long-term durability of interventions. However, challenges in implementation, including cost, learning curve, and time constraints, need to be addressed to facilitate wider adoption of IVUS procedure.
Vascular surgeon Dr. Bryan Fisher shares his experiences using Shockwave intravascular lithotripsy to treat lower extremity arterial disease on the BackTable Podcast. Dr. Fisher discusses his treatment algorithm, the unique role of Shockwave lithotripsy, and visualizing technical success following the therapy.
