|Peripheral Arterial Disease||Device: Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy||Not Applicable|
The FAST II study is a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized single-arm trial designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the FreedomFlow™ Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy System in subjects diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the lower extremities.
The FreedomFlow™ Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy System is a minimally invasive, catheter-based system designed for improving luminal diameter and modifying vessel wall compliance in patients with PAD.
The FreedomFlow™ Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy System is indicated to remove atherosclerotic plaque and modifying vessel wall compliance within peripheral arterial vessels. The therapy is intended for patients who are acceptable candidates for percutaneous transluminal atherectomy.
The objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the FreedomFlow™ Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy System for atherosclerotic plaque removal and vessel modification in de novo target lesions in the peripheral vasculature of the lower extremities.

Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy
Device: Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy
Remove atherosclerotic plaque and modify vessel wall compliance within peripheral arterial vessels. The therapy is intended for patients who are acceptable candidates for percutaneous transluminal atherectomy.
Other Name: Orbital Atherectomy Atherectomy
- Technical Success [ Time Frame: At the time of the index procedure, usually within one hour after starting the procedure ]Defined as the ability of the Cardio Flow FreedomFlow™ Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy System to achieve a residual diameter stenosis ≤50% without adjunctive therapy.
- Freedom From Major Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Primary safety endpoint is freedom from a composite of new onset major adverse events (MAE) at 30-day follow-up as adjudicated by an Independent Clinical Events Committee. This endpoint is evaluated on a per patient basis.
- Clinical Success [ Time Frame: At index procedure ]Defined as the ability of the FreedomFlow™ Orbital Circumferential Atherectomy System to achieve a final diameter stenosis <50% immediately post treatment with or without adjunctive therapy, as assessed by an independent Angiographic Core Laboratory.
- Procedure Success [ Time Frame: At index procedure ]Defined as <50% residual stenosis at target lesion with or without adjunctive therapy, no procedure-related MAE, no device malfunction causing the procedure to be aborted.
- Ankle Brachia, Index (ABI) Measured at Baseline, 30 Days and 6 Months [ Time Frame: 30 days and 6 months ]ABI measured at baseline, 30 days and 6 months. ABI ranges from 0 to 1, with smaller values indicating more severe disease. Normal ABI is 1.
- Rutherford Classification [ Time Frame: 30 days and 6 months ]Change in Rutherford Classification at 30 days and 6 months. Rutherford scale ranges from 0 to 6 with higher values indicating more severe disease. Rutherford classifications are: 0 Asymptomatic; 1 Mild Claudication; 2 Moderate Claudication; 3 Severe Claudication; 4 Ischemic Rest Pain; 5 Minor Tissue Loss; 6 Major Tissue Loss.
- Vascular Quality of Life Questionnaire (VascuQoL) Administered at Baseline, 30 Days and 6 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 30 days and 6 months ]Patient reported outcomes (PRO, VascuQoL questionnaire) at baseline, 30 days and 6 months. The VascuQoL questionnaire is a validated PRO for lower limb ischemia patients. The range of scores is 1 (worst) to 7 (best)
- Target Lesion and Vessel Revascularization [ Time Frame: 30 days and 6 months ]Clinically driven target lesion revascularization (TLR) at 6 months, target vessel revascularization (TVR) at 30 days and 6 months (as assessed by an independent Angiographic Core Laboratory). Clinically driven target lesion revascularization refers to disease progression that is caused by a recurrence of stenosis at the lesion that was treated; target vessel revascularization refers to disease progression that is caused by a recurrence of stenosis in the same vessel as the treated lesion but at a different site.
- Vessel Patency [ Time Frame: 30 days and 6 months ]Primary patency, primary assisted patency and secondary patency at 30 days and 6 months. Patency will be evaluated on a per lesion basis by duplex ultrasound and evaluated by an independent Vascular Ultrasound Core Laboratory. Restenosis is defined as Peak Systolic Velocity Rate (PSVR) of 2.5. Patency is determined using ultrasound to measure velocity. Patency is indicated for PSVR values < 2.5

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
Subjects must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible for participation in the study:
- Age ≥ 18 years old.
- Subject is a candidate for percutaneous endovascular intervention for peripheral vascular disease in the lower extremity.

- Clinical presentation of lifestyle limiting claudication, rest pain and/or ischemic wounds as characterized by Rutherford Classification 2, 3, 4, or 5.
Disease is located in the common femoral, superficial femoral, popliteal, tibioperoneal, anterior tibial, posterior tibial, and/or peroneal arteries.
- De novo target lesion(s) with stenosis ≥70% by visual estimation and/or
- Lesion(s) treated by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and/or atherectomy ≥3 months prior with a restenosis ≥70% by visual estimation.
- Up to three lesions can be treated at the index procedure provided the cumulative total lesion length is ≤ 20 cm AND all lesions are in the same target leg.
- Target reference vessel diameter (proximal to and distal to target lesion) is 2 to 8 mm by angiographic visual estimation.
