About the TRANSCEND Clinical Trial

The TRANSCEND randomized trial enrolled 446 patients at 65 global sites to assess the safety and effectiveness of the SurVeil drug coated balloon (DCB) versus the IN.PACT® Admiral® DCB for treatment of superficial femoral and proximal popliteal artery lesions. The primary efficacy endpoint is 12-month primary patency, defined as freedom from restenosis or clinically driven target lesion revascularization (CD-TLR). The primary safety endpoint is freedom from device or procedure related death within 30 days and above-ankle amputation or CD-TLR within 12 months. Non-inferiority is tested using a multiple imputation approach at one-sided alpha 0.025.

About the SurVeil DCB

The SurVeil DCB, a next-generation device that utilizes best-in-class technology in the treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD), includes a proprietary drug-excipient formulation for a durable balloon coating and is manufactured using an innovative process to improve coating uniformity.
