Brief Summary:

The CaveoVasc Thrombolysis Protection System is intended to aid sheath access and reduce bleeding complications during catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT) in the treatment of limb ischemia. This device has been designed to protect the puncture site by stabilizing the CDT sheath with the double-balloons that are part of the CaveoVasc system. Also the device is designed to reduce bleeding at the puncture site during CDT.

This study is designed to assess the safety and performance of the CaveoVasc Thrombolysis Protection System in twenty patients with limb ischemia undergoing treatment with CDT.

Thrombolysis Device: CaveoVasc® Thrombolysis Protection System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT) is a non-surgical option for many patients, which involves the insertion of an infusion catheter (via the femoral artery) into the thrombus allowing for slow delivery of a pharmacological thrombolytic agent. Insertion of the infusion catheter is performed in the catheterization laboratory. The patient is usually then transferred to the intensive care unit, with delivery catheter in place and the infusion running for at least 24 hours.

The major complications reported with CDT include major and minor bleeding, and complications secondary to early termination of the CDT due to access site bleeding.

CaveoMed developed the CaveoVasc® Thrombolysis Protection System, a vascular access protection device intended for use in thrombolysis procedures. Its function is to facilitate sheath access, and minimize risks of access site bleeding complications during lengthy catheter-directed thrombolysis procedures. Pressure balloons inflated outside the artery maintain a good seal throughout thrombolysis, which typically lasts up to 24 hours. The thrombolysis catheter is then removed, and hemostasis at the site is managed per the hospital's standard.

The CaveoVasc® Thrombolysis Protection System design has important advantages for use during CDT procedures (which require long catheter dwell times). The system is intended to protect from intra-procedural bleeding at the arterial access site, which currently remains a major problem for patients with critical limb ischemia undergoing CDT treatment. This protection would lower the rate of bleeding events, and increase the rate of completed intended therapy, without interruption of the CDT treatment due to bleeding complications.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of all major bleeds from the start of the CDT procedure to the end of the CDT procedure [ Time Frame: Start of the CDT procedure to the end of the CDT procedure (usually less than 48 hours) ]

    BARC type > 3, as follows:

    Type 3 Type 3a Overt bleeding plus hemoglobin drop of 3 to <5 g/dL* (provided hemoglobin drop is related to bleed). Any transfusion with overt bleeding.

    Type 3b Overt bleeding plus hemoglobin drop >5 g/dL* (provided hemoglobin drop is related to bleed), cardiac tamponade, bleeding requiring surgical intervention for control (excluding dental/nasal/skin/hemorrhoid), bleeding requiring intravenous vasoactive agents.

    Type 3c Intracranial hemorrhage (does not include microbleeds or hemorrhagic transformation, does include intraspinal), subcategories confirmed by autopsy or imaging or lumbar puncture, intraocular bleed compromising vision.

    (Type 4: CABG-related bleeding is not applicable for this study) Type 5: fatal bleeding Type 5a Probable fatal bleeding; no autopsy or imaging confirmation but clinically suspicious Type 5b Definite fatal bleeding; overt bleeding or autopsy or imaging confirmation.


  2. Duration of CDT procedure [ Time Frame: Start of the CDT procedure to the end of the CDT procedure (usually less than 48 hours) ]
    Hours


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events at Discharge [ Time Frame: From consent to discharge (usually less than 48 hours from start of procedure) ]
    Any untoward medical occurrence, unintended disease or injury, or untoward clinical signs (including abnormal laboratory findings) in subjects, users or other persons, whether or not related to the investigational medical device.

  2. Adverse Events at 30 days [ Time Frame: At 30 follow-up visit ]
    Any untoward medical occurrence, unintended disease or injury, or untoward clinical signs (including abnormal laboratory findings) in subjects, users or other persons, whether or not related to the investigational medical device.

  3. CDT without early interruption due to access site complication [ Time Frame: Start to end of CDT procedure (usually less than 48 hours from start of procedure) ]
    Rate

  4. Successful thrombolysis [ Time Frame: Start to end of CDT procedure (usually less than 48 hours from start of procedure) ]
    Rate of successful thrombolysis without bleeding complication

  5. Pain at access site [ Time Frame: Start to end of lysis medication (usually less than 48 hours from start of procedure) ]
    verbal pain scale (0 to 10), at start of CDT (time when infusion of lysis medication started), after 6 hours of start of CDT, and at the end of the CDT treatment (time when infusion of lysis medication has stopped)
