The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the use of NMB's percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the treatment of obstructive lesions of Arteriovenous (AV) Dialysis Fistulae/Grafts.

Condition Intervention
Obstructive Lesions of Arteriovenous Dialysis Fistulae Device: NMB Paclitaxel Drug Ejecting Balloon

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Restenosis rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Binary Stenosis is defined as ≥50% narrowing in luminal diameter basen upon comparison with the adjacent normal vessel.

    Restenosis Rate - comparison shall be performed both to the patient previous data as well as to restenosis rate data published in the literature for standard PTA balloon catheter procedure

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • restenosis rate [ Time Frame: 1, 3 and 12 months ]
    As defined above in the primary end point

  • Easy insertion and removal [ Time Frame: intraprocedural ]
  • Major adverse events rate [ Time Frame: intraprocedural 1, 3, 6 and 12 months ]

    All adverse events will be reviewed by the Investigator and evaluated as follows:

    • Nature of the event.
    • Severity of the event - serious, moderate, mild.
    • Relation of the adverse event to the device - unrelated, possible, definite
