Comparison of Lacrosse Non-Slip Elements and Cutting Balloons in Treating Calcified Coronary Lesions: a Retrospective, Single-Blind Randomized Controlled Study
The present study aimed to compare Lacrosse non-slip elements (NSE) and cutting balloons in treating calcified coronary lesions.
A retrospective analysis was performed in 79 patients, who were diagnosed with moderate to severe calcified coronary lesions by coronary angiography, and underwent interventional therapy from January to December 2017. Lacrosse NSEs were used in 41 patients, while cutting balloons were used in 38 patients. The basic clinical characteristics, angiographic images, perioperative parameters, operation durations, interventional complications and incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events were compared.
There was no significant difference in age, gender and risk factors between the two groups (P > 0.05). Furthermore, there was no significant difference in operation duration, and perioperative and postoperative complications between the two groups (P > 0.05).
Compared with cutting balloons, the Lacrosse NSE has a similar effect in treating moderate to severe calcified coronary lesions.
