Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Composite of freedom from all-cause peri-operative (≤30 day) death and freedom at 6 months from the following: index limb amputation (above or below the ankle), index limb re-intervention, and index-limb-related death. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Primary Patency

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 12 and 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Composite of freedom from all-cause peri-operative (≤30 day) death and freedom at 6 months from the following: index limb amputation (above or below the ankle), index limb re-intervention, and index-limb-related death.

  • Efficacy [ Time Frame: 1, 3, 6, 12 and 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary Patency of the target lesion at 6 months. Primary Patency is defined as the absence of target lesion restenosis (defined by DUS peak systolic velocity ratio (PSVR) ≥2.5) and freedom from target lesion revascularization (TLR).

Detailed Description:
The study will enroll patients presenting with claudication or ischemic rest pain and an angiographically significant lesion in the superficial femoral or popliteal artery and a patent outflow artery to the foot. After successful protocol-defined pre-dilatation, subjects that are determined not to require stenting based on defined angiographic criteria are randomized 2:1 to treatment with either MD02-LDCB (test arm) or standard PTA catheter (control arm) using similar techniques. Subjects that do not meet post-predilatation lesion criteria are excluded (and treated per standard practice) and followed for safety for 30 days. Randomized subjects will have ultrasound follow-up through 2 years and are consented for up to 2 years clinical follow-up.

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years to 100 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or non-pregnant female ≥20 years of age;
  • Rutherford Clinical Category 2-4;
  • Length ≤15 cm;
  • ≥70% stenosis
  • Lesion location starts ≥1 cm below the common femoral bifurcation and terminates distally ≤2 cm below the tibial plateau AND ≥1 cm above the origin of the TP trunk;
  • A patent inflow artery as confirmed by angiography
  • At least one patent native outflow artery to the ankle

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Life expectancy of < 2 years;
  • History of hemorrhagic stroke within 3 months;
  • Previous or planned surgical or interventional procedure within 2 weeks before or within 30 days after the index procedure;
  • History of MI, thrombolysis or angina within 2 weeks of enrollment;
  • Renal failure or chronic kidney disease
  • Severe calcification that renders the lesion un-dilatable
