Clinical Results

A new standard of care in SFA stenting. Eluvia DES has demonstrated superior primary patency at 1-Year against bare metal stents in EMINENT 1 and Zilver PTX in IMPERIAL. 2


EMINENT Randomized Controlled Trial Results3

EMINENT is the largest Randomized Controlled Trial (2:1) comparing Eluvia™ Drug-Eluting Vascular Stent System to self-expanding bare metal stents (BMS) for SFA/PPA; EU multi-center; superiority trial; core lab adjudicated.


EMINENT RCT 1-Year Primary Patency Results

Eluvia demonstrated superiority over BMS1 with a statistically significant primary patency of 85.4% versus 76.3% through 1-Year.

EMINENT RCT 1-Year Primary Sustained Clinical Improvement6

Eluvia demonstrated a statistically significant greater rate of sustained clinical improvement without reintervention over BMS through 1-Year.

1. EMINENT Trial: A global randomized controlled multi-center trial with 2:1 randomization of the Eluvia™ Drug-Eluting Stent against commercially-available Self-Expanding Bare Nitinol Stents, single-blind, superiority design; independent core lab adjudication. 1-Year Primary Patency rate of 83.2% in the Eluvia arm vs. 74.3% in the Bare-Metal Stenting arm (p-value = 0.0077).
2. 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. 1-Year Primary Patency rate of 86.8% in the Eluvia arm vs. 77.5% in the Zilver PTX arm (p-value = 0.0144).
3. EMINENT RCT 1-Year results presented by Yann Gouëffic, MD. VIVA 2021
4. Kaplan-Meier Estimate: Primary patency defined as core-lab assessed duplex ultrasound peak systolic velocity ratio (PSVR) ≤ 2.4 at 1-year in the absence of clinically-driven TLR or bypass of the target lesion.
5. Log-rank p-value compares the entire K-M curves from time point zero to day 395 (full 1-year follow-up window)
6. In EMINENT, primary sustained clinical improvement was defined as an improvement (decrease) by at least 1 Rutherford category, without TLR.

The Lancet. 2018 Oct 27;392(10157):1541-1551. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(18)32262-1. Epub 2018 Sep 24. PMID :30262332.
8. Kaplan-Meier Primary Patency Estimate through 1-Year (including follow-up window) was statistically significant with a p-value of 0.0094.
9. Based on 1-Year Kaplan-Meier estimates reported for IMPERIAL, RANGER II SFA, IN.PACT SFA, ILLUMENATE, LEVANT II and Primary Randomization for Zilver PTX RCT.
10. Kaplan Meier Estimate; Primary patency as determined by duplex ultrasound (DUS) Peak Systolic Velocity Ratio (PSVR) is ≤ 2.4 at the 1-Year follow-up visit, in the absence of clinically-driven TLR or bypass of the target lesion.
11. Log-rank p-value compares the entire K-M curves from time zero to full 1-Year follow-up window.
12. Intention to treat. Adapted from Iida, O VIVA 2019 Presentation. Kaplan-Meier estimate utilizing time-to-event of clinically-driven TLR up to 730 days and Duplex Ultrasound data at 2-Years. 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.
13. In IMPERIAL RCT, Eluvia K-M Primary Patency was 83.0% vs. 77.1% for Zilver PTX at 2-Years, p=0.1008.
