The TRIMAXX Coronary Stent Trial

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Abbott Vascular Identifier:
First received: January 9, 2008
Last updated: October 10, 2008
Last verified: October 2008
The primary objective of the trial is to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of treating coronary artery lesions which have not been previously treated with the TRIMAXX Coronary stent system as compared to the reported results for commercially available non-drug eluting coronary stent systems which are indicated for the same treatments.

Official Title: A Prospective, Multi-Center, Non-Randomized, Single-Arm Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Feasibility of the TriMaxx Coronary Stent in de Novo Coronary Artery Lesions.

Further study details as provided by Abbott Vascular:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Major Adverse Cardiac Events(MACE). MACE defined as Cardiac Death, MI(Q-wave and Non Q-wave) and Rarget Vessel Revascularization (TVR) [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Outcome: MACE [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Clinical Outcome: Ischemia driven TVR [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Clinical Outcome: Ischemia driven Target LesionRevascularization(TLR) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Clinical Outcome: Target Vessel Failure(TVF) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • Angiographic Outcome: Device Success defined as achievment of a final residual in-stent stenosis > 30%(by QCA) using the assigned device only [ Time Frame: procedural ]
  • Angiographic Outcome: Lesion Success defined as attainment of a >30% residual in-stent stenosis (by QCA) using any percutaneous method [ Time Frame: procedural ]
  • Angiographic Outcome: Procedural Success without the occurrence of cardiac death, Q-wave or Non Q-wave MI or repeat revascularization of the target lesion during the hospital stay. [ Time Frame: hospital stay ]
  • Angiographic Outcome: Angiographic in-stent and in-segment binary restenosis rate(>/= 50% diameter stenosis) [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
  • Angiographic Outcome: In-stent, in-segment, proximal, and distal minimum lumen diameter(MLD)) [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
  • Angiographic Outcome: Angiographic in-stent late loss, defined as the difference between the post-procedural MLD and the follow-up MLD [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: TRIMAXX
TRIMAXX Coronary Stent
Device: TriMaxx Coronary Stent placement
Angioplasty with coronary artery stent placement
Other Name: TriMaxx™ Coronary Stent

Detailed Description:
The TriMaxx study is a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized, single-arm trial intended to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of the TriMaxx Cornary Stent System. The study will enroll 100 subjects with de novo native coronary artery lesions who meet the eligibility criteria and agree to participate in the study. Subjects will be enrolled in a sequential manner. The safety and feasibility of the TRIMAXX stent will be evaluated by comparing the MACE rate that is observed 30 days post-procedure to the MACE rate for commercially available non-drug eluting stents. Secoandry evaluations will include analysis of clinical and angiographic parameters at 6 months. All subjects will undergo assessments at 30 days and at 6 months. Additionally, all subjects will undergo a follow-up angiogram at 6 months.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eligible for catheter based treatment
  • Single coronary lesion requiring treatment
  • Lesion is accessible with stent device
  • Completes informed consent for participation

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Normal lab values
  • Previous treatment in the affected artery
