Dr Lookstein comments on paclitaxel

Adding to the current dialogue about paclitaxel in PAD, Dr. Robert Lookstein shares commentary on Eluvia.


Eluvia has the lowest drug dose density among all peripheral paclitaxel-based technologies


Eluvia’s controlled drug delivery ensures that the majority of drug is transferred to the lesion rather than downstream

Eluvia is efficient and effective

Eluvia has been shown to be endothelialized within 90 days post-implant2

2-year results from IMPERIAL, the world’s first head-to-head DES SFA Trial1

Presented at LINC 2020

Eluvia demonstrated the highest primary patency ever reported in an SFA US Pivotal Trial for DES or DCB*

2-Year Durable and Consistent Results in Complex Lesions
* Highest-two year primary patency based on 24-month Kaplan-Meier estimates reported for IMPERIAL, IN.PACT SFA, ILLUMENATE, LEVANT II and Primary Randomization for Zilver PTX RCT. 
** Intention to treat. Kaplan-Meier estimate utilizing time-to-event of clinically-driven TLR up to 730 days and Duplex Ultrasound data at 24 months. Primary patency defined as duplex ultrasound PSVR ≤2.4, in the absence of clinically-driven target lesion revascularization or bypass of the target lesion, as assessed by the DUS core lab.
1. IMPERIAL Trial: A global randomized controlled multi-center trial with 2:1 randomization of the Eluvia™ Drug-Eluting Stent against Cook Medical’s Zilver™ PTX™ Stent, single-blind, non-inferiority design; independent core lab adjudication. Superiority determined in a post hoc analysis that was specified prior to unblinding. 12-Month Primary Patency rate of 86.8% in the Eluvia arm vs. 77.5% in the Zilver PTX arm (p-value = 0.0144).
2. In IMPERIAL RCT, Eluvia K-M Primary Patency was 83% vs. 77.1% for Zilver PTX at 24 months, p=0.1008.
