To obtain additional data on safety and efficacy of the Express stent implantation in the treatment of stenosed or occlusive atherosclerotic disease (de novo or restenotic lesions) in the iliac arteries (common or external).
This study was conducted to provide additional data on the safety and efficacy of the Express™ Vascular LD stent, particularly with regard to the long-term patency in iliac arteries. The study would provide data on angiographic endpoints and clinical outcomes at 30 days, 6 months, and at 12 and 24 months post implantation in atherosclerotic lesions in iliac arteries. The data obtained in this study with the use of the Express™ Vascular LD stent was compared with historical data obtained from the use of the Palmaz balloon-expandable stent. The Palmaz balloon expandable stent has been chosen as the control device because it is currently the only FDA-approved balloon-expandable stent for use in the percutaneous treatment of atherosclerotic disease in iliac arteries.
The Palmaz balloon-expandable stent is no longer commercialized in Europe. Therefore a randomized study with the Palmaz balloon-expandable stent was not feasible. In addition, there are no ongoing or published randomized trials describing performance of a newer version of the Palmaz stent in iliac atherosclerotic lesions. In order to adequately compare the efficacy data of the ExpressTM Vascular LD stent with the efficacy data of the Palmaz balloon-expandable stent, the same efficacy parameter as in the publication on the Palmaz balloon-expandable stent was measured in this study: % mean loss of the luminal diameter at 6 months post-procedure.
The findings of the longer-term Follow-Up assessments at 12 and 24 months will be presented as the results from these assessments become available.

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the treatment with balloon-expandable YUKON-BTX-Sirolimus-eluting stent over the treatment with YUKON-BTX uncoated stent in pat...
The objective of the BIOFLEX-COF trial is to investigate differences in formation of intimal hyperplasia at one and two years after implantation of nitinol-stents with high vs. low COF in ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficiency of outpatient surgery compared to conventional hospitalization in endovascular treatment of occlusive arterial disease. A cost-utility...
The objective of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the short-term (up to 12 months) outcome of treatment by means of the self-expanding iVolution nitinol stent in symptomatic (Rut...

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is one of the leading disorders with the highest mortality rate. Percutaneous angioplasty and stent implantation are the currently available standard methods for the treat...
This population-based cohort study investigated the risk of developing peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) in patients with Bell's palsy.
SSc-pulmonary arterial hypertension (SSc-PAH) is associated with worse response to therapy and survival when compared with idiopathic PAH. It is suggested that the vasculopathy in SSc may involve post...
Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.
Pathological processes which result in the partial or complete obstruction of ARTERIES. They are characterized by greatly reduced or absence of blood flow through these vessels. They are also known as arterial insufficiency.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
