Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy: Late lumen loss (LLL) at 9 months [ Time Frame: 9 Months ]
    Late lumen loss (LLL) at 9 months

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Composite Safety Endpoint [ Time Frame: 9 Months ]
    A composite of freedom from device- and procedure-related mortality within 30 days, freedom from major target limb amputation and freedom from clinically-driven TLR within 9 months post-index procedure.

  • Major Adverse Event (MAE) rate [ Time Frame: through 3, 6, 9, 12, 24 and 36 months ]
    Major Adverse Event (MAE) rate

  • Status of wound healing [ Time Frame: at 30 days, 3, 6, 9, 12, 24 and 36 months ]
    completely healed - improvement - unchanged - worsened

  • Thrombosis at the target lesion [ Time Frame: through 30 days, 3, 6, 9, 12, 24 and 36 months ]
    Thrombosis at the target lesion

  • Device success [ Time Frame: at the time of procedure ]
    is defined as successful drug delivery, balloon inflation, deflation and retrieval of the intact study device without burst below the rated burst pressure (RBP).

  • Clinical success [ Time Frame: up to discharge visit ]
    is defined as residual stenosis of ≤ 30% without procedural complications (death, major target limb amputation, thrombosis of the target lesion, or TVR)

Estimated Enrollment: 60
