Stellarex Clinical Evidence

Stellarex has demonstrated consistently high patency rates and safety in a wide range of patients across multiple clinical trials.

Top-Tier Patency in Common-to-Complex Patient Populations

Stellarex achieves top-tier 2-year patency in patients with similar characteristics, and in the most complex patient set studied in a DCB RCT, including the highest rates of severely calcified lesions.

Proven in Complex Patients and Comorbidities

The true measure of Stellarex performance is its top-tier patency in challenging lesions and comorbidities, including severe calcium, diabetic patients, renal insufficiency, female patients and clinically obese patients. Stellarex continues to perform in these patients through two years.

“The Stellarex DCB has shown safety and efficacy in a cohort of patients, which included a higher preponderance of diabetics and core-lab defined severely calcified lesions in the US IDE trial. These results, in combination with the cohort of patients studied in the EU RCT, demonstrate that the Stellarex DCB is safe and effective in diverse patient populations when addressing symptomatic femoropopliteal disease. ”

Low Clinically Driven Target Lesion Revascularization (CD-TLR)

Consistently low CD-TLR rates demonstrate the safety of Stellarex in common-to-complex patients.

Robust ILLUMENATE Clinical Trial Series

Stellarex is the only commercially available DCB for the SFA with two reported randomized controlled trials, four clinical trials (N = 1,079)6 and the largest number of randomized patients (N = 628)6. Across clinical trials, Stellarex delivers consistent results.
