1. The rate of clinical events and all-cause mortality was similar in patients with drug-coated balloon therapy compared to those with drug-eluting stent therapy. 2. Treatment with drug-coated balloons yielded non-significantly decreased rates of major bleeding and probable or definite stent thrombosis.  Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Drug-coated balloons (DCBs)...

1. Drug-coated balloon angioplasty was superior to standard angioplasty for stenotic lesion treatment in hemodialysis arteriovenous fistulas. 2. Drug-coated balloon angioplasty was shown to be noninferior to standard angioplasty for adverse events. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Arteriovenous (AV) fistulas are given preference over central venous hemodialysis catheters during hemodialysis...
