FDA Cautions About Use of Paclitaxel-Coated Products

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is cautioning healthcare providers about a potentially concerning signal of increased long-term mortality in study subjects treated with paclitaxel-coated products compared to patients treated with uncoated devices. A preliminary analysis has shown there is a potential for increased long-term mortality after use of paclitaxel-coated balloons and paclitaxel-eluting stents (collectively “paclitaxel-coated products”) to treat peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in the femoropopliteal artery.

The FDA website has more information.
