Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Level of Pain in the Lower Extremities Scored by the Participants on the Visual Analog Scale Following Intraarterial Administration of ISOVUE-250 or VISIPAQUE 270 in Peripheral DSA. [ Time Frame: Immediately prior to power injection run and again immediately following power injection run ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Visual Analog Scale: Patients were asked to mark on a 10 centimeter line where their pain was in the lower extremity of interest, in relation to the 2 extremes: no pain (0) on the far left and worst pain (10) on the far right. Pain Severity Scale: (0) None = VAS Score 0; (1) Mild = VAS Score 1-3; (2) Moderate = VAS Score 4-6; (3) Severe = VAS Score 7-10. Patients were assessed immediately prior to injection and again immediately following injection.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Number of Participants With Motion Artifacts Following Intraarterial Administration of ISOVUE-250 or VISIPAQUE 270 in Peripheral DSA. [ Time Frame: Immediately postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using the following 5-point scale, the Investigator reviewed the images for motion artifact in vessels distal to the knee: 0 = None; 1 = Mild, not significant; 2 = Significant, but correctable; 3 = Degrades image quality; 4 = Images uninterpretable.

  • The Number of Participants Requiring Repeat Injection(s) Following Intraarterial Administration of ISOVUE-250 or VISIPAQUE 270 in Peripheral DSA. [ Time Frame: Immediately postdose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Investigator assessed the images and recorded the number of repeat power injections required due to motion artifacts for each participant.

Inclusion Criteria:

Enroll a patient in this study if the patient meets the following inclusion criteria:

  • Provides written Informed Consent and is willing to comply with protocol requirements;
  • Is at least 18 years of age;
  • Is scheduled to undergo peripheral DSA for the diagnosis and/or treatment (PTA) of PAOD.

Exclusion Criteria:

Exclude a patient from this study if the patient does not fulfill the inclusion criteria, or if any of the following conditions are observed:

  • Is a pregnant or lactating female. Exclude the possibility of pregnancy:
  • by testing on site at the institution (serum or urine βHCG) within 24 hours prior to the start of investigational product administration,
  • by surgical history (e.g., tubal ligation or hysterectomy),
  • post menopausal with a minimum 1 year without menses;
  • Has any known allergy to one or more of the ingredients of the investigational products;
  • Has a history of severe congestive heart failure [class IV in accordance with the classification of the New York Heart Association (NYHA)]
  • Was previously entered into this study or received an investigational compound within 30 days before admission into this study;
  • Has a history of hypersensitivity to iodinated contrast agents;
  • Has renal impairment (eGFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m2, calculated using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease [MDRD] study equation , );
  • Has any medical condition or other circumstances which would significantly decrease the chances of obtaining reliable data, achieving study objectives, or completing the study and/or postdose follow-up examinations.
