Prospective monocenter single-blind randomized (1:1) investigator sponsored clinical trial, in which consecutive patients candidates for percutaneous intervention of angioplasty to treat symptomatic in-stent restenosis of the SFA and P1 segment of the popliteal artery will be assigned to one of two study arms:

  1. Treatment Arm: Paclitaxel eluting percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PePTA)
  2. Control Arm: standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (sPTA).


To evaluate the morphologic and clinical efficacy of Paclitaxel eluting percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PePTA) for the reduction of restenosis in SFA and PA stents compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (sPTA).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • primary patency rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Primary patency at 6 month follow up, defined as <50%* diameter stenosis as demonstrated by CDUS and CTA in the absence of clinically driven TLR (Target Lesion Revascularization) during follow-up. Clinically driven TLR defined as reintervention of the target lesion due to presence of a symptomatic >50%* diameter stenosis.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • severe adverse events [ Time Frame: 30 day ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
