The JACTAX Drug Eluting Stent has been designed to minimize the amount of polymer in contact with the vessel surface, thus potentially reducing the incidence of untoward side effects. The Juxtaposed Ablumenal Coating Process is capable of exclusive coating on the ablumenal side of pre-mounted bare metal stents. Juxtaposed Ablumenal Coating is a proprietary formulation containing a bioerodable polymer. The combination of the Juxtaposed Ablumenal Coating Process and Juxtaposed Ablumenal Coating create a unique microstructure surface, and reduces the amount of required polymer.
Prospective, multi-center, randomized trial. A maximum of 130 patients will be enrolled, in a 2:1 ratio to receive either the JACTAX LD stent or the TAXUS™ Libertè™ stent to evaluate the efficacy of the product.
