Official Title: Peripheral Facilitated Antegrade Steering Technique in Chronic Total Occlusions

Further study details as provided by BridgePoint Medical:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Patients with a Major Adverse Events (MAE) [ Time Frame: 30 Day ]
    MAE is defined as death, major unplanned amputation, perforation requiring intervention, or target lesion revascularization due to complication.

  • Incidence of Intraprocedural Technical Success [ Time Frame: Intraprocedural (<24 hours) ]
    Technical success is defined as the placement of a guidewire in the true lumen distal to the CTO

Enrollment: 105
Study Start Date: July 2011
Study Completion Date: January 2012
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: CTO Crossing and Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty
    Crossing of the CTO with the BridgePoint Medical System and subsequent treatment of the CTO via PTA (specific devices to be used for PTA at investigators' discretion)

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • suitable candidate for non-emergent, peripheral angioplasty
  • documented de-novo or restenotic peripheral CTO lesion with TIMI 0 flow for at least 90 days and satisfactory distal vessel visualization (collateral supply)
  • limb ischemia or claudication, Rutherford class I-III (grade 1-5) caused by the occluded artery

Exclusion Criteria:

  • intolerance to aspirin or a neutropenic response to Ticlopidine or Clopidogrel
  • appearance of thrombus or intraluminal filling defects
  • peripheral intervention in the target limb within two weeks of the procedure
  • renal insufficiency (serum creatinine of > 2.3 mg/dl)
  • contraindication to a peripheral artery intervention
  • participation in another investigational protocol
