CORRECTING And REPLACING Medtronic IN.PACT Drug-Eluting Balloon Studies Show Significant Benefit Of Novel Medical Device In Treating Narrowed Arteries

Ultimately, Medtronic’s global IN.PACT clinical program will include 24 studies involving approximately 4,000 patients and 200 sites across more than 80 countries worldwide. Through these company-sponsored and physician-initiated studies, Medtronic IN.PACT drug-eluting balloons will be investigated thoroughly for the treatment of arterial disease in coronary and peripheral vessel beds.

Last month, for example, Medtronic announced the start of the IN.PACT Global SFA clinical study, an international research program to evaluate the treatment of peripheral artery disease using the company’s IN.PACT Admiral drug-eluting balloon in up to 1,500 “real world” patients. The first patient in the study is expected to be enrolled by the end of May.

In collaboration with leading clinicians, researchers and scientists, Medtronic offers the broadest range of innovative medical technology for the interventional and surgical treatment of cardiovascular disease and cardiac arrhythmias. The company strives to offer products and services that deliver clinical and economic value to healthcare consumers and providers worldwide.
