Brief Summary:
The primary objective of the randomized study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the TIGRIS Vascular Stent in the treatment of de novo and restenotic atherosclerotic lesions, ≤ 24cm in length, in the superficial femoral and proximal popliteal arteries (SFA/PPA) of patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Safety Endpoint - Number of Participants Free From Major Adverse Events at 30 Days [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Defined as any adverse event (occurring within 30 days of the initial procedure) that causes death, target vessel revascularization (TVR), and amputation above the metatarsals in the treated leg (index limb amputation).

  2. Primary Efficacy Endpoint - Number of Participants With Primary Patency at 12 Months [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]
    Primary patency is defined by a Peak Systolic Velocity Ratio (PSVR) ≤2.5 without target lesion revascularization (TLR) at 12 months after implantation.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Procedural Success [ Time Frame: Within 48 hours of initial device implant ]
    Successful device implantation with a residual stenosis <30% without acute (within 48 hours) serious adverse events.

  2. Number of Participants With Device Success [ Time Frame: Immediately following initial device implant (usually within a few minutes to an hour). ]
    Successful delivery of stent to the intended site and successful stent deployment.

  • Prior treatment of the SFA/PPA in the target leg with stenting or bypass.
  • Flow-limiting aortoiliac disease.
  • Additional ipsilateral femoropopliteal or tibial disease, outside of the lesion to be stented, requiring intervention.
  • Arterial aneurysm in the target leg.
  • Co-morbid conditions which would preclude compliance with study protocol.

  • Abnormal platelet levels, i.e., platelet count at Baseline less than 80,000/microliter.
  • History of coagulopathy.
