Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate the rate of AngioJet® System related adverse events. [ Time Frame: Day 1, 3 Month , 6 Month and 12 Month Follow Ups ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To estimate the change in degree of occlusion from Baseline to Final angiogram. [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To estimate the proportion of successful patients post-procedure and those affected by restenosis and /or rethrombosis of the treated vessels throughout a 12 Month Follow-Up. [ Time Frame: Day 1, 3 Month , 6 Month and 12 Month Follow Ups ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize treatment options used concomitantly with the AngioJet® System for occlusions occurring in the peripheral vascular system. [ Time Frame: Day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To characterize the occurrence of clinical events. [ Time Frame: Day 1, 3 Month , 6 Month and 12 Month Follow Ups ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To estimate the proportion of limb ischemia patients in whom the limb was salvaged. [ Time Frame: Day 1, 3 Month , 6 Month and 12 Month Follow Ups ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the quality of life at Baseline and throughout a 12 Month Follow-Up. [ Time Frame: Day 1, 3 Month , 6 Month and 12 Month Follow Ups ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To estimate the compressibility and valve closure time in lower extremity DVT patients. [ Time Frame: Day 1, 3 Month , 6 Month and 12 Month Follow Ups ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Limb Ischemia
Patients presenting with limb ischemia for treatment
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Patients presenting with deep vein thrombosis for treatment
Hemodialysis Access
Patients presenting with thrombosed hemodialysis access for treatment
Other Thrombotic Conditions
Patients presenting with a thrombotic condition other than limb ischemia, deep vein thrombosis or thrombosed hemodialysis access for treatment

Detailed Description:

The PEARL II Registry is a prospective, multi-center, observational registry including 500 patients who meet eligibility from up to 50 sites worldwide. Patient participation will be 12 months including post procedure follow-up contact at 3, 6 and 12 months. The study duration is estimated at 36 months.

A patient's treatment is determined by the treating physician based on the clinical situation and local practices. In contrast to a randomized, controlled trial, there are no pre-defined experimental interventions.


Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
