Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary patency [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary patency rate at 6 months, defined by duplex ultrasound measurement of peak systolic velocity ratio ≤2.0 at the target lesion(s) with no clinically-driven reintervention within the treated segment, verified by Core Lab

  • Primary patency [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary patency at 12 months, defined as absence of restenosis (≥50% stenosis) or occlusion within the originally treated lesion based on angiography, verified by Core Lab


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Technical success [ Time Frame: procedure (day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Technical success, defined as the ability to cross and dilate the lesion to achieve residual angiographic stenosis no greater than 30% by visual assessment

  • Procedural success [ Time Frame: Procedure (day 0) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Procedural success, defined as the ability to achieve <30% final residual stenosis of the target lesion by visual estimation (angio) and the absence of any in-hospital Major Adverse Events (MAE, defined as clinically-driven target vessel revascularization, major unplanned amputation of the treated limb, and all-cause mortality)

  • MAE (Major Adverse Event) [ Time Frame: 1, 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    MAE at 1, 6 and 12 months

    Major Adverse Events (MAE) include (but are not limited to)

    • death
    • myocardial infarction
    • stroke
    • emergent surgical revascularization of the target vessel
    • repeat vascularization of the target vessel
    • major amputation
    • bleeding complication requiring transfusion

  • SAE (Serious Adverse Event) [ Time Frame: discharge, 1, 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Other SAEs at discharge, 1, 6 and 12 months

    A Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is defined as an Adverse Event which:

    • results in death
    • is life-threatening
    • results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity
    • requires in-patient hospitalization or unduly prolonged hospitalization.
    • necessitates an intervention to prevent a permanent impairment of a body function or permanent damage to a body structure.
    • is a congenital abnormality/birth defect, a fetal distress or fetal death
    • results in malignancy

  • Improvement of Rutherford classification [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Improvement in Rutherford Clinical Category at 12 months, defined as an improvement in clinical status indicated by a decrease of one or more in Rutherford Clinical Category at 12 months compared to baseline, that is attributable to the treated limb (in cases of bilateral disease)

  • Improvement in Ankle-Brachial Index [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Improvement in Ankle-Brachial Index at 12 months, defined as an increase in the ankle-brachial index (ABI) at 1 year compared to baseline in subjects with compressible arteries and baseline ABI<0.9

  • Primary Patency [ Time Frame: 1 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary patency rate at 1 and 12 months, defined by duplex ultrasound measurement of peak systolic velocity ratio ≤2.0 at the target lesion(s) with no clinically-driven reintervention within the treated segment

  • Secondary patency [ Time Frame: 1, 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Secondary patency rate at 1, 6 and 12 months, defined by duplex ultrasound peak systolic velocity ratio ≤2.0 maintained by repeat percutaneous intervention

  • Limb salvage rate [ Time Frame: Procedure, 1, 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Limb salvage rate, defined as 1 minus major amputation rate (major amputation is defined as at or above ankle, as opposed to minor amputation being at or below metatarsus preserving functionality of foot

  • Target Lesion Revascularisation [ Time Frame: Procedure (day 0), 1, 6 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Target lesion revascularization (TLR), defined as a repeat intervention to maintain or re-establish patency within the region of the treated arterial vessel plus 5mm proximal and distal to the treated lesion edge.
