Barcelona, February 14th, 2018 – iVascular Luminor DCB proves to be the best!

The EFFPAC 6-month results have been presented by Prof. Dierk Scheinert (Park-Krankenhaus Leipzig, Germany) at the opening of the LINC 2018 main session dedicated to latest results with new technologies for femoropopliteal obstructions. EFFPAC is a Randomized Controlled Study comparing the Luminor DCB versus POBA in femoropopliteal lesions.

Prof. Dierk Scheinert stated that:

  • Primary and secondary endpoints were achieved with high statistical significance.
  • Primary endpoint revealed a late lumen loss of 0.14mm in the DCB group vs 1.06mm in the POBA group (p<0.001).
  • Target Lesions Revascularization was 1.3% (DCB) vs 17.1% (POBA) (p<0.001).
  • Primary Patency (PP) was 94.7% (DCB) vs 75.0% (POBA) (p<0.001).
  • Rutherford stages were overall improved for 85.2% patients (DCB) vs 75.0% (POBA) (p=0.021), and by 3 stages for 44.6% patients (DCB) vs 27.8%.

“We were convinced that Luminor was the best DCB due to its advanced coating technology. With the EFFPAC-RCT results, it is now demonstrated” -said Lluis Duocastella, CEO of iVascular.
