Brief Summary:

A physician initiated trial investigating the LEGFLOW Paclitaxel-Eluting Peripheral Balloon dilatation catheter for the treatment of femoropopliteal lesions longer than 15cm.

Objective: to evaluate the short-term outcome of the treatment by means of the LEGFLOW Paclitaxel-Eluting Peripheral BAlloon Dilattaion for the treatment of long femoropopliteal lesions (TASC C&D).

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: ReFlow Study, a Physician-initiated Trial Investigating the Efficacy of the LegFlow Paclitaxel-Eluting Peripheral Balloon Dilatation Catheter for the Treatment of Femoropopliteal Lesions Longer Than 15cm (TASC C&D Lesions).
Study Start Date : October 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : January 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: LEGFLOW DCB
patients treated with the LEGFLOW Paclitaxel-Eluting Peripheral Balloon Dilatation Catheter

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Patency at 12 months, defined as absence of a hemodynamically significant stenosis on duplex ultrasound (systolic velocity ratio no greater than 2.4) at the target lesion and without TLR within 12 months. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Patency rate at 1 & 6 month follow-up [ Time Frame: 1 month, 6 months ]
  2. Technical success [ Time Frame: during procedure, at baseline ]
  3. Freedom from TLR at 1,6 and 12-month follow-up [ Time Frame: 1 month, 6 months, 12 months ]
  4. Clinical success at follow-up, defined as an improvement of Rutherford classification at all follow-up time points [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  5. Serious adverse events [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

  13. Target vessel diameter visually estimated is >4mm and <6.5 mm
  14. There is angiographic evidence of at least one-vessel-runoff to the foot, irrespective of whether or not outflow was re-established by means of previous endovascular intervention
