Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety: Major adverse event rate (MAE), defined as all cause death, major amputation of target extremity, target lesion thrombosis, target lesion revascularisation (TLR)and target vessel revascularization (TVR) at 30 days. [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  2. Performance: Target lesion primary patency rate at 6 months assessed by quantitative vascular angiogram (QVA). [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Target lesion failure, assessed by target lesion revascularization (TLR) rate at 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
  2. Target vessel revascularization (TVR) rate at 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
  3. Binary re-stenosis rate at 6 months, assessed by QVA [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  4. Major adverse event rate, defined as all cause death, major amputation of target extremity, target lesion thrombosis, TLR and TVR at 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ]
  5. Change in mean ABI at discharge, 30 days, 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: Discharge, 30 days, 6 months and 12 months ]
  6. Change in Rutherford classification at 30 days, 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months and 12 months ]
  7. Quality of life evaluation, assessed by EQ5D questionnaire at baseline, 30 days, 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 30 days, 6 months and 12 months ]
  8. Duplex based primary patency at 30 days, 6 months and 12 months [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months and 12 months ]
  9. Procedural success, defined as successful vascular access, completion of endovascular procedure and immediate morphologic success with a residual stenosis <30%. [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
  10. Device success, defined as exact deployment according to Instructions For Use [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
  11. Technical success, defined as device or procedural success without the occurrence of major adverse events during the hospital stay. [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 1-2 days ]
  12. Late Lumen Loss [ Time Frame: 6-months post-procedure ]

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subject has provided written informed consent.
  2. Subject is willing and able to comply with follow-up evaluations.
  3. Subject is ≥ 18 years old.
  4. Single or sequential de novo or restenotic lesions (stenosis ≥ 70% diameter reduction or occlusion) in the infrapopliteal arteries ≥ 30 mm. Lesions should not extend beyond the ankle joint.
  5. A maximum of 2 different vessels can be treated: successful wire crossing is required for the first target vessel before randomization occurs.
  6. Subject with PAD or critical limb ischemia according to the current guidelines in need for urgent revascularization to relieve symptoms and improve walking capacity.
  7. Reference Vessel Diameter (RVD) 2 - 4 mm, based on visual estimation.
  8. Inflow free from flow-limiting lesion confirmed by angiography. Patients with flow-limiting inflow lesions (> 50% stenosis) can be included if lesion(s) have been treated successfully before the index procedure, with a maximum residual stenosis of 30% per visual assessment.
  9. At least one non-occluded crural vessel with angiographically documented run-off to the foot.
  10. Successful wire crossing of the lesion.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Flow-limiting (> 50% DS) inflow lesion proximal to target lesion, left untreated.
  2. Failure to obtain <30% residual stenosis in a pre-existing haemodynamically significant (>50% DS) inflow lesion (DEB or DES not allowed for the treatment of inflow lesions).
  3. Infrapopliteal lesions extending beyond the ankle joint and involving crural vessels.
  4. Acute thrombus in the target vessel (eg complication of inflow lesion treatment) documented by angiogram, if not treated successfully prior to enrolment).
  5. Planned major amputation above the ankle of target limb, or any other planned major surgery within 30 days post-procedure.
  6. Previous bypass surgery of target vessel.
  7. Previously implanted stent in target lesion.
  8. Haemorrhagic diathesis or coagulopathy or other disorders such as gastrointestinal ulcerations or cerebral disorders that would restrict prescription of dual anti-platelet therapy.
  9. Subject with hepatic failure, deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, systemic lupus erythematous or subject is on immunosuppressant therapy.
  10. Subject with acute MI ≤ 3 months.
  11. Renal failure with a creatinine of ≥ 2,5 mg/dl, except patients currently on regular dialysis.
  12. Phenprocoumon intake, except for patients who are treated for Arterial Fibrillation. For these patients Phenprocoumon treatment can be interrupted and re-started after treatment with Dual Antiplatelet Therapy for 4 weeks post procedure.
  13. Known allergy to contrast media used for angiography that cannot be controlled by pre-medication with steroids and/or antihistaminica.
  14. Allergy, intolerance or hypersensitivity to Paclitaxel or related compounds and/or to the delivery matrix n-Butyryl tri-n-hexyl citrate(BTHC).
  15. Co- morbid conditions limiting life expectancy ≤ 1 year.
  16. Patients that are under active treatment for cancer; Patients, who have been successfully treated for cancer in the past, can be included.
  17. Subject is participating in another clinical device trial where the primary endpoint has not yet been reached.
  18. Pregnant and/or breast-feeding females or females who intend to become pregnant during the time of the study.
