Brief Summary:
The BARD® Venovo™ Venous Stent Study is a non-randomized clinical study intended to collect confirmatory evidence of the safety and effectiveness of the Venous Stent for the treatment of iliofemoral occlusive disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
May-Thurner Syndrome Peripheral Vascular Disease Venous Disease Iliofemoral Occlusive Disease Device: VENOVO™ Venous Stent Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, single-arm clinical study of the VENOVO ™ Venous Stent for the treatment of iliofemoral occlusive disease. The study will be conducted at a maximum of 35 investigational sites ("sites") in the United States, and Europe and Australia/New Zealand. Enrollment will continue until a maximum of one hundred seventy (170) subjects are treated with the VENOVO™ Venous Stent, which is an estimated three-hundred forty (340) consecutive subjects in a non-randomized fashion. It is assumed that approximately 50% of the treated subjects will be U.S. subjects. Clinical follow-up for all treated subjects will be performed at hospital discharge, 30-days, and 6-, 12-, 24-, and 36-months post-index procedure.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Primary Patency of the Venous Stent at 12 Months Post-Index Procedure [ Time Frame: 12 months post-index procedure ]

    Primary patency rate at 12 months post-index procedure evaluated against a literature-derived Performance Goal (PG) of 74%. Primary patency defined as: freedom from Target Vessel Revascularization (TVR); freedom from thrombus occlusion and stenosis > 50% as measured by Duplex Ultrasound (DUS).

    Please note that both the primary effectiveness and the primary safety endpoint are considered co-primary endpoints. That is, both endpoints need to be significant to claim the study as successful.


  2. Number of Participants With Freedom From Major Adverse Events (MAEs) [ Time Frame: 30 days post-index procedure ]

    Freedom from major adverse events (MAEs) defined as: Target Vessel Revascularization; Device and/or procedure related death; Major amputation of target limb; Pulmonary Embolism which is clinically important; Vascular injury requiring surgical/endovascular intervention; Embolization /migration of stent; Device or procedure related acute DVT involving the treated limb.

    Please note that both the primary effectiveness and the primary safety endpoint are considered co-primary endpoints. That is, both endpoints need to be significant to claim the study as successful.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Endpoint With Hypothesis Testing: Index of Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS) From Baseline to 12 Months [ Time Frame: Evaluation at 12 months post-index procedure ]
    The Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS) system includes 10 clinical descriptions (pain, varicose veins, venous edema, skin pigmentation, inflammation, induration, number of active ulcers, duration of active ulceration, size of active ulceration. and level of compliance with medical compression therapy), scored from 0 to 3 (total possible score, 30) with 0 means absent, 1 means mild, 2 means moderate and 3 means severe. Total VCSS is the sum of all VCSS assessment scores from categories for a given time point. Twelve-month data is the change between baseline score and 12-month follow-up score. Results calculated for Intent-to-Treat (ITT) subjects. Lower values represent a better outcome, that is, a level of pain less than that experienced at baseline.

  2. Endpoint With Hypothesis Testing: Index of Quality of Life (QoL) From Baseline to 12 Months [ Time Frame: Evaluation at 12 months post-index procedure ]
    The Quality of Life (QoL) assessment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency Questionnaire (CIVIC-20) is a 20-item questionnaire which provides a global index and an outline of 4 QoL dimensions - pain (4 items), physical (4 items), psychological (9 items) and social (4 items). Items are scored on a scale from 1 to 5. A low score corresponds to greater patient comfort. Total CIVIQ-20 score is the sum of all 20-item scores The score of each dimension was obtained by adding up the scores of each constituent item within that dimension. Twelve-month data is the change between baseline score and 12-month follow-up score. Results calculated for evaluable ITT subjects. Lower values represent a better outcome, that is, a better QoL than that experienced at baseline.

  3. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Index of CEAP at 30 Days, 6 Months, and 12 Months Post Procedure [ Time Frame: Evaluation through 30 day, 6 months and 12 months post index procedure ]
    Clinical-Etiologic-Anatomic-Pathophysiologic (CEAP) Classification is a system that describes a doctor's physical exam findings for vein problem(s), the cause of the problem(s), the location in the leg, and the mechanism responsible for the manifestation of the vein problem. For Clinical classification, the clinical components indicates disease severity, ranging from none (0 points) to active ulcers (6 points).For each category of Etiology, Anatomy, and Pathophysiology classifications, at each time point, frequency of each category is reported. Subsequent clinical study reports will present CEAP at 24 and 36-months follow-up. Changes from baseline measures to given time points are presented. Lower mean scores represent an improvement from baseline measure.

  4. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Number of Participants With Acute Technical Success [ Time Frame: At time of Index Procedure ]
    Acute technical success is defined as successful deployment of stent(s) to intended target with adequate lesion coverage as assessed by the Investigator.

  5. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Number of Participants With Acute Procedure Success (ITT Subjects) [ Time Frame: Less than 30 days post index procedure ]
    Technical success is defined as no major adverse events experienced between index procedure and discharge

  6. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Number of Participants With Lesion Success (ITT Subjects) [ Time Frame: At the conclusion of index procedure ]
    Lesion Success is defined as the attainment of less or equal to 50% residual stenosis at the conclusion of the index procedure.

  7. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Number of Participants With Freedom From Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR) (ITT Subjects) [ Time Frame: Evaluation throrugh 30 day, 6 months and 12 months post index procedure ]
    Freedom from Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR) through 30 days is specific to the first revascularization procedure of the target lesion.

  8. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Number of Participants With Freedom From Target Vessel Revascularization (TVR) (ITT Subjects) [ Time Frame: Evaluation through 30 days, 6 months and 12 months post index procedure ]
    Freedom from Target Vessel Revascularization (TVR) is defined as the first revascularization procedure of the target vessel, as determined by an Independent Core Lab. Freedom from Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR) and Freedom from TVR results are the same through the 12 month analysis as all TLRs were also TVRs in this case.

  9. Endpoint Without Hypothesis Testing: Number of Participants Without Device Stent Fracture at 12 Months Follow-Up [ Time Frame: Evaluation at 12 months post-index procedure ]
    Stents were evaluated at the 12 month follow-up for fracture analysis. Evaluable ITT subjects are included in this analysis.
