Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Study to Determine the Performance of the Astron and Pulsar-18 Stents in Europe
Official Title  ICMJE BIOTRONIK - The Treatment of Iliac and Femoral Atherosclerotic Lesions Using the Self-expanding Astron and Pulsar-18 Stents (BIOFLEX-I Europe)
Brief Summary BIOFLEX-I EU is the European arm of the BIOFLEX-I IDE study (NCT01319812). Data from BIOFLEX-I EU will be pooled with data in the IDE. The objective of this study is to separately demonstrate the clinical performance of BIOTRONIK's Astron and Pulsar-18 stents in the European arm of the BIOFLEX-I IDE (NCT01319812). The Pulsar-18 stent will be used for the treatment of femoro-popliteal lesions, located in the native superficial femoral artery (SFA) or proximal popliteal artery (PPA), while the Astron stent will be used for the treatment of the common or external iliac artery lesions.

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age ≥ 18 years
  • Willingness to comply with study follow-up requirements.
  • Candidate for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA).
  • Life-style limiting claudication or rest pain with an ABI ≤ 0.9 (resting or exercise). Thigh or toe brachial index (TBI) may be used / performed if ABI is inadequate.
  • Written informed consent.
  • One de novo, restenotic or occluded lesion representing a femoro-popliteal or iliac indication OR Two de novo, restenotic or occluded lesions representing one femoro-popliteal indication and one iliac indication on contralateral limbs - (i.e. one target lesion per limb).
  • Lesions may be one solid lesion or a series of multiple, smaller lesions to be treated as one lesion.
  • Subjects with bilateral, SFA/PPA disease (i.e. one SFA/PPA lesion per limb) are eligible for enrolment into the study. The target lesion will be selected at the investigator's discretion based on study eligibility criteria. The contralateral SFA/PPA intervention may be performed at the time of the index procedure (prior to treatment of study lesion); however, the use of an investigational treatment is prohibited. If the contralateral SFA/PPA intervention is not performed at the time of the index procedure, the intervention must be performed at least 30 days after the index procedure. The use of an investigational treatment for the contralateral intervention is prohibited.
  • Subjects with bilateral, iliac disease (i.e. one iliac lesion per limb) are eligible for enrollment into the study. The target lesion will be selected at the investigator's discretion based on study eligibility criteria. The contralateral iliac intervention may be performed at the time of the index procedure; however, the use of an investigational treatment is prohibited. If the contralateral iliac intervention is not performed at the time of the index procedure, the intervention must be performed at least 30 days after the index procedure. The use of an investigational treatment for the subsequent contralateral intervention is also prohibited.
  • Femoro-popliteal lesions must be located at least 1 cm distal to the profunda femoris artery and at least 3 cm above the knee joint (radiographic joint space).
  • Iliac lesions must be located only in either the common or external iliac artery.
  • Lesions must be treatable with a maximum of two stents.
  • Angiographic evidence of ≥ 70% stenosis or occlusion (operator visual assessment).
  • Lesion length ≤ 190 mm (if de novo or restenotic) or ≤ 100 mm (if occluded).
  • Target vessel reference diameter: 2.5 to 6 mm (SFA/PPA) or 6 to 9 mm (iliac arteries) by visual estimate.
  • Angiographic evidence of patent SFA and PPA (iliac indication) and angiographic evidence of at least one distal vessel runoff to the foot (both femoro-popliteal and iliac indications). Patent is defined as < 50% stenosis.
  • For SFA/PPA intervention, a significant stenosis (> 70%) or occlusion of an ipsilateral, inflow artery (e.g. aortoiliac, common femoral) must be successfully treated with PTA and/or commercially-available stent just prior to treatment of the target lesion. Successful treatment is defined as no complications and less than 30% residual stenosis following intervention.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unresolved bleeding disorder (INR ≥ 1.6) at the time of the index procedure.
  • Presence of other ipsilateral, arterial lesions distal to the target lesion requiring treatment within 30 days of the index procedure (either before or after) or at the time of index procedure.
  • Additional percutaneous interventional procedures (cardiac and/or peripheral) planned within 30 days after the index procedure.
  • Presence of a complication following pre-dilation of target lesion.
  • Presence of a target vessel/lesion that is excessively tortuous or calcified or is adjacent to an acute thrombus that is unresponsive to anti-thrombotic therapies.
