Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 30 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: First in Man Safety Evaluation of the ART18Z Bioresorbable Stent for the Treatment of Single de Novo Lesion of a Native Coronary Artery.
Study Start Date : June 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ART18Z Bioresorbable stent Device: ART18Z Bioresorbable stent
The drug free fully bioresorbable coronary stent ART18Z is a balloon expandable poly lactic acid stent.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MACE rate [ Time Frame: at 6 months ]
    Major Adverse Cardiac Event is defined as death, MI (Myocardial Infarction) or any TLR (Target Lesion Revascularization).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acute Performances (Device/Procedure Success) [ Time Frame: Procedure and post-procedure up to 24 hours ]
  2. Stent thrombosis [ Time Frame: at 1, 3, 6, 12, 18 months ]
  3. Clinically driven TVF, TLR, TVR [ Time Frame: at 1, 3, 6, 12, 18 months ]
  4. Evolution of Angiographic binary restenosis [ Time Frame: at 12 months ]
  5. Evolution of Angiographic in-stent Late Lumen Loss [ Time Frame: at 12 months ]
  6. Percentage of stent coverage by OCT [ Time Frame: at 12 months ]
  7. Evolution of the neointima by OCT [ Time Frame: at 12 months ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No


- Healthy voluntary and women of child-bearing potential are not accepted

Inclusion Criteria:

Angiographic Inclusion Criteria:

Target lesion must meet all of the following criteria

  • Single vessel lesion
  • De novo lesion
  • Located in a native coronary artery with visually estimated nominal artery diameter of 2.8 to 3.2 mm
  • Length ≤ 8 mm visually estimated
  • Located in a major artery or branch with a visually estimated stenosis >50% and <100% with a TIMI flow ≥1

General Inclusion Criteria:

Patient profile:

  • Patient is able to verbally confirm understanding of risks, benefits and treatment alternatives of receiving the ART18Z Bioresorbable Stent.
  • Patient provides written informed consent approved by the EC prior to any clinical investigation related procedure
  • Patient must agree to undergo all clinical investigation plan - required clinical follow-up visits, QCA, OCT
  • Patient must agree not to participate in any other clinical investigation for a period of 3 years following the procedure
  • a social security number is required, otherwise patients cannot be included in the trial.

Clinical profile:

  • Silent ischemia, stable or unstable angina with documented ischemia (stress echocardiography, 12-lead ECG, nuclear imaging, bicycle test, Treadmill stress test)
  • 3 months limited clopidogrel treatment must be acceptable in compliance with patient health status
  • Patient must be an acceptable candidate for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery

Exclusion Criteria:

Angiographic Exclusion Criteria:

  • Target lesion meets any of the following criteria:
  • Aorto-ostial location (within 3 mm)
  • Left main location
  • located within 3 mm of the origin of the LAD or LCX
  • Located within an arterial or saphenous vein graft or distal to a diseased (defined as vessel irregularity per angiogram and >20% stenosed lesion, by visual estimation) arterial or saphenous vein graft
  • Lesion involving a bifurcation ≥ 1.5 mm in diameter and ostial lesion > 40% stenosed by visual estimation or side branch requiring predilatation
  • Excessive tortuosity proximal to or within the lesion (Extreme angulation (≥ 90%) proximal)
  • Calcification lesion
  • Restenotic from previous intervention
  • The target vessel contains visible thrombus
  • Chronic total occlusion (CTO)
  • Another clinically significant lesion is located in the same major epicardial vessel as the target lesion (including side branches)
  • Patient has a high probability that a procedure other than pre-dilatation and stenting will be required at the time of procedure for treatment of the target vessel (e.g. atherectomy, cutting balloon)
  • Non clinical investigation percutaneous intervention in the target vessel < 6 months prior to or if planned to be done within 6 months after the investigational procedure.
  • Non clinical investigation percutaneous intervention in a non-target vessel < 1 months prior to the investigational procedure with TIMI flow = 3 and no evidence of dissection at the time of the clinical investigation procedure, or if planned to be done within 6 months after the investigational procedure.

General Exclusion Criteria

  • Evidence of an acute MI within 3 weeks of the intended investigational procedure
  • Patient has current unstable arrhythmias
  • Patient has a known left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < 30%
  • Patient has received a heart transplant or any other organ transplant or is on a waiting list for any organ transplant
  • Patient is receiving or scheduled to receive chemotherapy for malignancy within 30 days prior to or after the procedure
  • Patient is receiving immunosuppression therapy and has known immunosuppressive or autoimmune disease (e.g. human immunodeficiency virus, systemic lupus erythematosus etc.)
  • Patient is receiving or scheduled to receive chronic anticoagulation therapy (e.g., heparin, coumadin)
  • Patient has a known hypersensitivity or contraindication to aspirin, both heparin and bivalirudin, both clopidogrel and ticlopidine, or contrast sensitivity that cannot be adequately pre-medicated
  • Elective surgery is planned within the first 6 months after the procedure that will require discontinuing either aspirin or clopidogrel
  • Patient has a platelet count < 100,000 cells/mm3 or > 700,000 cells/mm3, a WBC of < 3,000 cells/mm3, or documented or suspected liver disease (including laboratory evidence of hepatitis)
  • Patient has known renal insufficiency with creatine clearance < 40 ml/min or patient on dialysis

  • Patient has had a cerebro vascular accident (CVA) or transient ischemic neurological attack (TIA) within the past six months
  • Patient has had a significant GI or urinary bleed within the past six months
  • Patient has extensive peripheral vascular disease that precludes safe 6 French sheath insertion
  • Patient has other medical illness (e.g., cancer or congestive heart failure) or known history of substance abuse (alcohol, cocaine, heroin etc.) that may cause non-compliance with the clinical investigation plan, confound the data interpretation or is associated with a < 24 months limited life expectancy
  • Vulnerable population (refer to §6.4)
  • Patient is already participating in another clinical investigation that has not yet reached its primary endpoint
