Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Angiographic Late Lumen Loss [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Loss in analysis segment (the treated segment including 10mm distal and proximal) minimal lumen diameter from post-procedure through follow-up angiography at 6 months.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety - Device Related Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  • Primary Patency of Treated Segment [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 24 months ]
  • Target Lesion Revascularization [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 24 months ]
  • Target Vessel Revascularization [ Time Frame: 6, 12, 24 months ]
  • Device Success [ Time Frame: at procedure ]
    Successful delivery and deployment of the first inserted study device (in overlapping setting a successful delivery and deployment of the first and second study device) at the intended target lesion and successful withdrawal of the study device with attainment of final residual stenosis of less than 30% of the target lesion by quantitative vessel angiography (QVA).

  • Procedural Success [ Time Frame: at procedure ]
    Completion of the procedure with less than 30% residual stenosis by QVA of the target lesion (after prolonged dilation and stenting, if necessary)

  • Change in Ankle-brachial Index [ Time Frame: pre-procedure, 6, 12 and 24 months ]
  • Change in Walking Impairment Questionnaire (WIQ) [ Time Frame: pre-procedure, 6, 12 and 24 months ]
  • Change in Rutherford Grade [ Time Frame: pre-procedure,6, 12 and 24 months ]
  • Serum Paclitaxel Levels - in Subsets of Patients [ Time Frame: 0, 1, 3 hours and pre-discharge ]

Detailed Description:
The LEVANT I trial will enroll patients presenting with clinical evidence of claudication or critical limb ischemia and an angiographically significant lesion in the femoropopliteal arteries. Patients will be randomized to treatment with either the Lutonix Catheter or standard balloon angioplasty after predilation.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Clinical Criteria

  • A single de novo or restenotic atherosclerotic lesion >70% in the SFA or popliteal artery that is ≥4 cm and ≤15 cm in total length.
  • Reference vessel diameter ≥4 mm and ≤ 6mm
  • Successful wire crossing of lesion
  • A patent inflow artery free from significant lesion (>50% stenosis) as confirmed by angiography (treatment of target lesion acceptable after successful treatment of inflow artery lesions)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant in < 2yrs
  • Live expectancy of <2 years
  • Patient actively participating in another investigational device or drug study
  • History of hemorrhagic stroke within 3 months
  • Previous or planned surgical or interventional procedure within 30 days of index procedure
  • Chronic renal insufficiency with creatinine >2.5 mg/L

  • Known inadequate distal outflow
  • Significant inflow disease
  • Acute or sub-acute thrombus in target vessel
  • Severe lesion calcification
  • Acute vessel occlusion or sudden symptom onset
  • Use of adjunctive therapies (i.e. laser, atherectomy, cryoplasty, scoring/cutting balloon, etc.)
  • Prior participation in the current study
