The Study to Compare SMART Nitinol Stent and Balloon Angioplasty (SIT-UP)
This is a multi-center prospective, randomized, two-arm study evaluating performance of the Cordis SMART™ Nitinol Stent System compared to balloon angioplasty. Patients will be randomized on a 1:1 basis. It is anticipated that a total of 120 patients will be entered into the study.
Objective of the study is: Performance of the Cordis S.M.A.R.T.™ (CONTROL™) Nitinol Stent System for the treatment of superficial femoral artery (SFA) long de novo or restenotic lesions (≥ 70% stenosis or occlusions) in comparison with balloon angioplasty as determined by Binary Restenosis (≥50% restenosis based on a peak systolic velocity ratio ≥ 2.5) at one year as demonstrated by Duplex sonography.

- Binary restenosis by Duplex Ultrasound. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Technical success defined as a successful access and deployment of the device with recanalization. [ Time Frame: at the time of deployment ]
- Procedural complications. [ Time Frame: up to the moment the catheter sheath introducer has been removed ]
- Procedural success as defined by successful recanalization, without the occurence of a Serious Adverse Event (SAE). [ Time Frame: up to the catheter sheath introducer has been removed ]
- Occurrence of Adverse events (AE) and Serious Adverse Events (SAE) in-hospital. [ Time Frame: 1, 6 and 12 months ]
- Ankle Brachial Index (ABI). [ Time Frame: discharge, 1, 6 and 12 months ]
- Restenosis measured by Duplex sonography. [ Time Frame: 1, 6 and 12 months ]
- Target Lesion revascularisation (TLR). [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Target Vessel revascularisation (TVR). [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Target Limb revascularisation. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- The number of revascularisations in both limbs. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Clinical categorization of chronic limb ischemia by means of the Rutherford classification. [ Time Frame: 1, 6 and 12 months ]
- Pain free and absolute walking distance (treadmill testing) as compared to baseline testing. [ Time Frame: 1 and 12 months post index procedure ]
- Amputation of the index limb. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Cardiovascular events (ACS, TIA, stroke, vascular death). [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Cordis SMART™ nitinol self expandable stent
Cordis SMART™ Nitinol Stent System
Active Comparator: 2
The study population will consist of 120 symptomatic peripheral vascular disease patients with SFA occlusions. The disease will consist of symptomatic, de novo or restenotic occlusions (5 - 22 cm) on diagnostic imaging. The occlusions must not extend beyond the proximal popliteal artery. For the purpose of this protocol, no lesion within 3 cm of the upper part of the patella may be treated. At least one calf vessel must be patent. Reference vessel diameter must be >= 4.0 to <= 6.0 mm.
Trial participants who meet all entry criteria, will be randomized to the SMART™ Nitinol Stent or balloon angioplasty.
Patients will be followed for 12 months after the procedure. Study examinations will be done at screening, procedure time, discharge, 1, 6 and 12 months after the study procedure.
This study will be conducted as an investigator initiated multicenter study with 6 study centers in Switzerland. Principal investigators will be Prof. Amann, PD Dr. med T. Pfammatter (University Hospital Zürich) and Prof. I. Baumgartner, Prof. J. Triller (University Hospital Bern).
