Arms Assigned Interventions
Device SUPERA Stent
SUPERA Interwoven Self-Expanding Nitinol Stent System

Detailed Description:

This registry follows up to 200 patients for at least 5 years.

The STRONG Data Registry will follow patients under real world conditions, evaluating restenosis rates, periprocedural/postprocedural complications, patency, target lesion revascularization, walking distance, stent fractures, and adverse events/serious adverse events.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Exclusion Criteria:


  • Patient or legal guardian understands registry procedures and has voluntarily signed an informed consent in accordance with institutional and local regulatory policies. (Note: Retrospective data may be collected and entered into the EDC system after a fully executed informed consent has been provided).
  • Rutherford-Becker classification 2 through 5 only
  • Patient is at least 18 years of age and of legal age of consent.
  • Patient must be willing to participate in the registry for at least 5 years.


  • Target lesion is a single de novo or restenotic (outside a stent) SFA or Popliteal artery lesion ≥ 1 cm from origin of another stent; additional lesions may be present., but there is only one target lesion
  • All SFA target lesions are to be located with the proximal point at least 2 cm below the origin of the profunda femoris artery.
  • All Popliteal Artery target lesions are to be located with the most distal point at least 1 cm proximal to the bifurcation of the anterior tibial artery and the tibioperoneal trunk.
  • Target lesion length 1-20 cm (visual estimate)
  • Target lesion stenosis ≥50% (visual estimate)
  • Popliteal artery patent if the lesion is in the SFA
  • SFA patent if the lesion is in the popliteal artery
  • At least one widely patent (< 50% stenosis) infrapopliteal artery (for distal run-off)

Exclusion Criteria:


  • Evidence of heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), or intravenous tPA, Plavix, Ticlid, or aspirin therapy sensitivities
  • Patient is participating in a clinical study that could confound results
  • Patient is pregnant/breastfeeding at time enrollment or plans to become pregnant during the course of participation in the registry.


  • Target lesion length > 20 cm
  • Instent restenotic / reoccluded target lesion
  • Acute (≤ 4 weeks) thrombotic occlusion
  • Untreated ipsilateral pelvic stenosis
