SeQuent Please balloon catheter for in-stent coronary restenosis (MTG1)
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'acute coronary syndrome'
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'stable angina'
NICE has developed medical technology guidance on the SeQuent Please balloon catheter.
NICE medical technology guidance addresses specific technologies notified to NICE by manufacturers. The ‘case for adoption’ recommendations are based on the claimed advantages of introducing the specific technology compared with current management of the condition. This ‘case’ is reviewed against the evidence submitted and expert advice. If the case for adopting the technology is supported, then the technology has been found to offer advantages to patients and the NHS. The specific recommendations on individual technologies are not intended to limit use of other relevant technologies which may offer similar advantages.
Hospital teams may want to use the SeQuent Please drug-coated balloon catheter as the evidence showed that it reduces restenosis of the coronary arteries more than drug-coated stent. It also reduces the need for further treatments and procedures to treat restenosis.
NICE has recommended that further research is carried out to compare the SeQuent Please drug-coated balloon catheter with other types of drug-eluting catheters and stents.
This guidance has been incorporated into the following NICE Pathways, along with other related guidance and products.
