Paris Course on Revascularisation (PCR) statements are intended to represent a practical perspective from the PCR community representing a constituency of ≈60,000 active members on areas of relevant practice based on informed review of evidence and prevailing clinician interpretation. The PCR statement on paclitaxel drug-coated balloon (DCB) use in peripheral interventions was presented at EuroPCR 2019 (Paris, France) to address the ongoing controversy raised by the meta-analysis published in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA). The meta-analysis prompted widespread concern by suggesting that treatment of patients with superficial femoropopliteal artery (SFA) disease using paclitaxel-coated devices (stents or DCBs) ...
