Endologix Inc. LLC, a privately held global medical device company devoted to improving patients’ lives with innovative interventional treatments for vascular disease, recently announced the 12-month results from the DETOUR 2 clinical trial. DETOUR 2 was an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) study, designed to evaluate safety and effectiveness of the DETOUR System for percutaneous bypass in the treatment of long-segment femoropopliteal disease. The DETOUR System uses the ENDOCROSS™ catheter and TORUS™ stent graft to perform a totally percutaneous femoro-popliteal bypass routed through the femoral vein.
The Detour 2 clinical trial enrolled 202 patients in the United States and Europe for the primary analyses. This cohort represents a patient population with severe femoropopliteal artery disease. Ninety-six percent of the patients had chronic total occlusions (CTO), the mean lesion length was 327.14 mm with a CTO length of 217.31 mm, and 70.4% had severe calcification.
