Brief Summary:
BIOLUX P-III is a prospective, international, multi-centre, postmarket all-comers registry to collect clinical performance data on the Passeo-18 Lux paclitaxel releasing balloon catheter in the treatment of atherosclerotic disease of the infrainguinal arteries.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Atherosclerosis Peripheral Artery Disease Device: Passeo-18 Lux

Detailed Description:

The Passeo-18 LUX Paclitaxel Releasing BalloonCatheter is a novel drug-releasing balloon that received CE-mark in January 2014. Its safety and efficacy has been investigated in two randomized First-in-Man trials in patients with stenosis or occlusion of the femoropopliteal (BIOLUX P-I) and infrapopliteal (BIOLUX P-II) arteries when compared to an uncoated device.

The purpose of the BIOLUX P-III all-comers registry is to collect short and long-term clinical performance data on the Passeo-18 Lux DRB in the treatment of atherosclerotic disease in the infrainguinal arteries in an all-comers patient population in daily clinical practice.

Official Title: BIOTRONIK - A Prospective, International, Mulit-centre, Post-market All-comers Registry to Assess the Clinical Performance of the Passeo-18 Lux Paclitaxel Releasing Balloon Catheter in Infrainguinal Arteries - III
Actual Study Start Date : October 2014
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : February 2019

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Passeo-18 Lux
    Endovascular Therapy

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Freedom from Major Adverse Events (MAE) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    A composite of freedom from device- and procedure-related mortality through 30 days, freedom from major target limb amputation and clinically driven target lesion revascularization (TLR) within 6 months post-index procedure.

  2. Freedom from clinically-driven Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Freedom from clinically-driven TLR [ Time Frame: 6 and 24 months ]
  2. Freedom from clinically-driven Target Vessel Revascularization (TVR) [ Time Frame: 6 and 24 months ]
  3. Primary patency [ Time Frame: 12 and 24 months ]
  4. Freedom from MAE [ Time Frame: 12 and 24 months ]
  5. Change in mean Ankle Brachial Index [ Time Frame: 6, 12 and 24 months ]
  6. Amputation-free survival [ Time Frame: 6, 12 and 24 months ]
  7. Patient-reported outcomes assessment: Pain score, Walking Impairment Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 6, 12 and 24 months ]
  8. Clinical Success: Improvement in Rutherford classification compared to the pre-procedure Rutherford classification [ Time Frame: 6, 12 and 24 months ]
  9. Device success [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    Successful delivery, inflation, deflation, and retrieval of the Passeo-18 Lux DRB.

  10. Technical success [ Time Frame: Day 0 ]
    Successful completion of the endovascular procedure and immediate morphological success with ≤ 50% residual diameter reduction of the treated lesion as determined by visual estimation

  11. Procedural success [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 1-2 days ]
    Procedural success is technical and device success without the occurrence of any major adverse events during the hospital stay
