Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Target lesion revascularization (TLR) [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Major Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    death, amputation, target lesion revascularization

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Procedural success [ Time Frame: (day 1) During the interventional procedure in catheterization laboratory. Procedure may last 1-2 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Defined as a ≤30% stenosis in the target lesion immediately post assigned treatment

  • Target vessel revascularization [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Primary patency [ Time Frame: 1, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of subjects, with uninterrupted (intervention-free) patency since the initial procedure. Primary patency ends at the first occurrence of one of the following: reintervention for the purpose of treating the target lesion, total occlusion of the target lesion, surgical bypass of the target, or amputation of the extremity due to target lesion restenosis or occlusion.

  • Assisted primary patency [ Time Frame: 1, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Defined as a re-intervention of a stenosis (patent vessel) >50% at the treatment site to prevent reocclusion by angiographic assessment in the target lesion.

  • Assisted secondary patency [ Time Frame: 1, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Defined as a re-intervention of a reocclusion (non-patent vessel) at the treatment site by angiographic assessment in the target lesion.

  • Ankle/Brachial Index (ABI) [ Time Frame: 1, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Functional status [ Time Frame: 1, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Walking Impairment Questionnaire (WIQ) at 30 day follow up will be considered baseline and will be compared to the WIQ at 6 and 12 months.

  • Rutherford classification [ Time Frame: 1, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Stent integrity [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 353
Study Start Date: June 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Laser atherectomy and PTA
laser, then balloon angioplasty
Device: Turbo Elite Laser and Turbo Tandem Laser Guide Catheters

  • Planned or predicted cardiovascular surgical or interventional procedures prior to completion of the 30-day follow-up
  • Identification of any lesion below the target stent in the treated leg >50% that will require preplanned or predicted treatment within 30 days(prior to the 6 month follow up)
