Drug Eluting Therapies

More evidence. More confidence.
More successful outcomes.

More evidence. 

The only drug-eluting technologies for use in the superficial femoral artery (SFA) backed by 5 RCTs, and studies that will exceed 10,000 patients1,6.

More confidence.

Consistent outcomes in RCTs and real world studies give you the confidence to choose EluviaTM and RangerTM DET​.7-8

More successful outcomes. 

Fewer repeat procedures with EluviaTM and RangerTM compared to alternative
devices.9-10


FDA and CIRSE support the use of paclitaxel for SFA treatment


Latest DET data releases and updates

At LINC 2023, several clinical updates were shared covering our DET portfolio, including 4-year data for the Ranger II SFA RCT and several registries. 

The new long-term clinical data consistently demonstrates exceptional outcomes in SFA lesions for both Ranger and Eluvia DET.

Restenosis after SFA Interventions remains highly prevalent

High restenosis with BMS/PTA

 

Bare metal stents (BMS) and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) are still widely used despite being associated with high restenosis rates.11


Since the first use of PTA nearly 60 years ago, SFA disease management remains inconsistent. BMS and PTA are still widely used even though meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials reveal that they are associated with high restenosis rates.11-12

New-generation endovascular approaches, however, such as drug coated devices, have helped to reduce restenosis rates.13-14


Paclitaxel devices are effective and safe

Paclitaxel DET help reduce restenosis, resulting in better outcomes for patients vs BMS or POBA¹³⁻¹⁴

The EMINENT RCT combined with network meta-analysis of RCTs conclude that DES and DCBs respectively, result in greater primary patency versus non-drug devices.13-14
