The clinical investigation is an international, prospective, double-blind, randomized safety and efficacy study. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the NIRx(TM) Paclitaxel-Coated Stent (1.0µg/mm2 of paclitaxel incorporated into slow- and moderate-release formulation of a triblock copolymer carrier system)in patients who present for stenting of de novo lesions of a native coronary artery.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of coronary artery stenting with the NIRx(TM) Paclitaxel-Coated Stent (1.0µg/mm2 of paclitaxel incorporated into slow- and moderate-release formulation of a triblock copolymer carrier system) for the treatment of de novo lesions in native vessels. Patients in 2 sequential cohorts will be randomised to receive either the NIRx(TM) Paclitaxel-Coated Stent or the uncoated control stent. In cohort 1, the slow-release formulation NIRx(TM) Paclitaxel-Coated Stent will be studied. If the safety profile is acceptable, the moderate-release formulation NIRx(TM) Paclitaxel-Coated Stent will be studied in Cohort 2. In each f the 2 cohorts, 133 patients will be treated with the NIRx(TM) paclitaxel-Coated Stent and 133 with the uncoated control stent (1.1 ratio), for a total of 532 patients in study.

Paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) coronary angioplasty is an alternative treatment for de-novo coronary lesions in small vessels. This study with the new Essential PCB aimed to evaluate early and mid-te...
To evaluate the impacts of stent techniques on long-term clinical outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using drug-eluting stents (DES) for coronary bifurcation lesions in patients w...
Balloon angioplasty revolutionised percutaneous treatment for coronary artery disease four decades ago, but vessel-threatening dissections, elastic recoil and restenosis were major drawbacks to an oth...
The angiographic slow/no-reflow phenomenon after primary percutaneous coronary intervention carries a poor prognosis for patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS). Ther...
During percutaneous coronary intervention, "buddy-in-jail" technique is often used to facilitate stent delivery in complex coronary artery lesions. However, the safety and efficacy of this technique w...
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
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. &...
