Poll Results: Drug-Eluting Balloons

The Vascular Disease Management monthly poll is a barometer of vascular specialists’ views on trending topics in the vascular therapy arena. In the past month we asked readers to vote on whether they thought drug-eluting balloons were promising but still not well understood for the treatment of vascular disease.

Poll responses 2-13-13

The majority of respondents disagreed that they are still unproven devices. Perhaps results from the Medtronic drug-eluting balloon trial will change more of those “agrees” to “disagrees.” What are your thoughts? Respond in the comments below. You can also read a review of drug-eluting technologies from volume 8, issue 9 of VDM.

Also, vote on the current poll: Will endarterectomy reign over carotid stenting far into the future?
