|Summary of Trial: ||This investigation will compare the long-term (12-month) safety and effectiveness of the Zilver® PTX™ Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent to Control (PTA) in a multicenter clinical trial involving up to 56 investigative sites. |
Patients with de novo or restenotic lesions of the above-the-knee femoropopliteal artery that have not been previously stented will be eligible to be randomly assigned to either the Zilver® PTX™ Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent group or the Control group. A single lesion in each limb (total of two lesions per patient) may be treated.
Results from this study will be used to evaluate the short-term (1 year) primary study outcome which is needed to evaluate safety and performance of this device and to support submission of marketing approval. When the last enrolled patient completes 1-year follow-up, a regulatory submission for marketing approval (e.g., Shonin and PMA) will be prepared. Longer term (5-year) follow-up data will be collected to provide valuable information on late adverse events and device integrity.
