The society for cardiovascular angiography and interventions (SCAI) think tank is a collaborative venture that brings together interventional cardiologists, administrative partners, and select members of the cardiovascular industry community for high-level field-wide discussions. The 2020 think tank was organized into four parallel sessions reflective of the field of interventional cardiology: (a) coronary intervention, (b) endovascular medicine, (c) structural heart disease, and (d) congenital heart disease (CHD). Each session was moderated by a senior content expert and co-moderated by a member of SCAI's emerging leader mentorship program. This document presents the proceedings to the wider cardiovascular community in order to enhance participation in this discussion, create additional dialogue from a broader base, and thereby aid SCAI and the industry community in developing specific action items to move these areas forward.

: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began reimbursement for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) performed in ambulatory surgical centers (ASC) in January 2020. The ability to perform PCI in an ASC has been made possible due to the outcomes data from observational studies and randomized controlled trials supporting same day discharge (SDD) after PCI. In appropriately selected patients for outpatient PCI, clinical outcomes for SDD or routine overnight observation are compar...

Abstract Objectives This study sought to explore if intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) use in real-world patients is associated with improved long-term outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Background The benefit of IVUS use with PCI in real world is uncertain. Methods We identified Medicare patients who underwent PCI from 2009 to 2017 and evaluated the association of IVUS use with long-term risk of mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), and repeat revascularization. We used propens...

BACKGROUND: The Harmonization By Doing (HBD) program was established in 2003 as a partnership among stakeholders of academia, industry and regulatory agencies in Japan and the United States, with a primary focus on streamlining processes of global medical device development for cardiovascular medical devices. While HBD has traditionally focused on development of devices intended to treat conditions prevalent in adults, in 2016, HBD established the "HBD-for-Children" program, which focuses on the...

Pediatric medical device approvals lag behind adult approvals. Historically, medical devices have rarely been designed specifically for children, but use in children has most often borrowed from adult or general use applications. While a variety of social, economic, and clinical factors have contributed to this phenomenon, the regulatory process remains a fundamental aspect of pediatric device development and commercialization. FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) has establis...

Abstract Background The use and clinical outcomes of fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement in patients with stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD) are uncertain, as prior studies have been based on selected populations. Objectives This study sought to evaluate contemporary, real-world patterns of FFR use and its effect on outcomes among unselected patients with SIHD and angiographically intermediate stenoses. Methods The authors used data from the Veterans Affairs Clinical Assessment, Reportin...

Abstract Background Interventional cardiologists receive feedback on their clinical care from a variety of sources including registry-based quality measures, case conferences, and informal peer interactions. However, the impact of this feedback on clinical care is unclear. Methods We interviewed interventional cardiologists regarding the use of feedback to improve their care of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) patients. Interviews were assessed with template analysis using deductive and ...
