Positive Twelve-Month Tack Optimized Balloon Angioplasty Below-the-Knee (TOBA-BTK) Results Presented at SCAI 2016

Data Presented at the Society for Cardiac Angiography and Interventions 2016 Annual Meeting Demonstrate Sustained Vessel Patency and Low Re-Intervention Rates with the Tack Endovascular System™

WAYNE, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intact Vascular, Inc., a developer of medical devices for minimally invasive peripheral vascular procedures, announced that positive twelve-month results from its Tack Optimized Balloon Angioplasty – Below-the-Knee (TOBA-BTK) clinical study were presented at the SCAI 2016 conference by Dr. Christian Wissgott, Assistant Director, at Westküstenklinikum Heide in Heide, Germany.

The TOBA-BTK study enrolled 35 subjects at 6 sites in Europe and New Zealand. All study subjects were suffering from critical limb ischemia, a form of peripheral arterial disease, in one or both legs. Of the subjects enrolled, 32 were treated with the 4 French Tack Endovascular System following standard balloon angioplasty in the tibial and peroneal arteries. The Tack Endovascular System is a new technology designed to repair dissections (or tears) in the artery wall that frequently occur as a complication of balloon angioplasty. The system allows physicians to repair these dissections while leaving a minimal amount of foreign material in the artery, reducing mechanical stress on the artery, and preserving future treatment options.
