ROBUST III is a prospective, multi-center, single blind randomized controlled clinical trial in a 2:1 allocation of treatment versus control device.
This study is an adaptive design with an interim analysis for sample size re-estimation performed after 60 subjects have been enrolled. The interim analysis will be be undertaken following completion of the 6-month follow-up data from these subjects. Based on the results of the interim analysis, the final total sample size required for the study will be re-estimated. A minimum of 140 subjects, and a maximum of 200 subjects (pending the re-estimation) will be enrolled in the study. A Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) will review the interim analysis results, including the sample size re-estimation and make recommendations related to trial continuation to the sponsor.

Experimental: Optilume Treatment
The treatment arm will be the Urotronic Optilume Drug Coated Balloon (DCB).
Device: Optilume Drug Coated Balloon (DCB)
The Optilume Drug Coated Balloon (DCB) is a guidewire compatible catheter with a tapered atraumatic tip. The distal end of the catheter has an inflatable balloon coated with a proprietary coating containing the drug paclitaxel that facilitates the drug's transfer to the urethral wall upon inflation.
Active Comparator: Control Treatment
The control arm will be treated by a urethral dilation method considered to be best standard of care for the study site and subject. A control treatment may be either a rod, uncoated balloon or DVIU.
Device: Control Treatment
A control subject may be dilated with either a rod, uncoated balloon or DVIU until the desired result is reached, based on standard of care for the clinical site and treating physician
