DESolve® Nx Trial


The DESolve Nx Trial is multi-center, prospective single arm study enrolling 126 patients at up to 15 centers in Germany, Belgium, Poland, Brazil and New Zealand designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the DESolve® Novolimus Eluting Bioresorbable Coronary Scaffold System (CSS). The study device is comprised of a fully bioresorbable polylactide-based scaffold coated with a polylactide-based resorbable polymer-drug matrix. The principal imaging endpoint is in-stent late lumen loss assessed by QCA at 6 months for all patients. In a sub-set of more than 35 patients enrolled at select centers, in-stent late lumen loss will be evaluated by QCA at 6 and 36 months; stent and vessel assessment using IVUS, OCT will be conducted at baseline, 6 and 24 months; and multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) at 12 months thus providing long-term assessment of the scaffold and surrounding vessel. The principal safety endpoint is the composite of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) comprised of cardiac death, target vessel myocardial infarction (MI) and clinically-indicated target vessel revascularization (TLR).
