      Outcome After Crossing Femoropopliteal Chronic Total Occlusions Based on Optical Coherence Tomography Guidance

      Aims: The crossing of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) is the key step for an endovascular treatment. The Ocelot system is a novel device that combines a steerable drilling tip with optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology. It provides intraluminal imaging to help the crossing of CTOs in the femoropopliteal segment. Aim of the study was to determine early and midterm results after recanalization with this device. Methods and Results: During a period of 16 months, 84 CTOs were treated using the Ocelot system and prospectively registered. The primary end points were technical success and the primary and secondary patency of the ...

    2. Lower Extremity Revascularization Using Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Directional Atherectomy: Final Results of the EValuatIon of the PantheriS OptIcal COherence Tomography ImagiNg Atherectomy System for Use in the Peripheral Vasculature (VISION) St

      Lower Extremity Revascularization Using Optical Coherence Tomography–Guided Directional Atherectomy: Final Results of the EValuatIon of the PantheriS OptIcal COherence Tomography ImagiNg Atherectomy System for Use in the Peripheral Vasculature (VISION) St

      Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel optical coherence tomography (OCT)–guided atherectomy catheter in treating patients with symptomatic femoropopliteal disease. Methods: The VISION trial ( ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT01937351) was a single-arm, multicenter, global investigational device exemption study enrolling 158 subjects (mean age 67.2±10.5 years; 87 men) across 20 participating sites. In this cohort, 198 lesions were treated with an average length of 53±40 mm using the Pantheris catheter alone or Pantheris + adjunctive therapy. The primary safety endpoint was the composite of major adverse events (MAEs) through 6 months (objective performance goal 43 ...

    3. Final Results of the Chronic Total Occlusion Crossing With the Ocelot System II (CONNECT II) Study

      Final Results of the Chronic Total Occlusion Crossing With the Ocelot System II (CONNECT II) Study

      Purpose : To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the optical coherence tomography-guided Ocelot catheter to cross femoropopliteal chronic total occlusions (CTOs). Methods : The CONNECT II study was a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized single-arm study of the safety and effectiveness of the Ocelot catheter in CTO crossing. Key inclusion criteria were a 99% to 100% stenosed femoropopliteal segment, lesion length between 1 and 30 cm, and resistance to guidewire crossing. The main exclusion criterion was a severely calcified target vessel. The primary safety endpoint was 30-day major adverse events (MAE), while the primary effectiveness endpoint was successful CTO crossing (i.e., guidewire ...
