EffPac Trial

EffPac is a multicenter, randomized and controlled trial to assess the EFFectiveness of Luminor PAClitaxel-coated balloon catheter versus uncoated balloon catheter in the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries to prevent vessel restenosis or reocclusion.

“Luminor paclitaxel-coated balloon catheter demonstrates to be clinical highly effective and safe in inhibiting restenosis compared to POBA.”

The innovative coating technique matters and is shown not only in the patency, LLL and TLR data, but also in the safety outcomes. The results of the study allow direct comparison to other already-completed RCTs applying DCB from different manufacturers in the same target vessels.
