St. Jude Medical, Inc. Announces the Launch of the ILUMIEN III Clinical Trial

St. Jude Medical Inc. announced the launch of the ILUMIEN III clinical trial, a prospective, international, randomized trial evaluating the clinical benefits of the company’s optical coherence tomography (OCT) guidance during stent implantation. The ILUMIEN III study will compare OCT-guided stent implantation to implantation guided by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) or angiography alone, diagnostic tools that offer less resolution than OCT during intravascular assessments and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The ILUMIEN III study is the multicenter randomized study to date to compare PCI outcomes associated with all three imaging tools. By assessing each diagnostic system head-to-head, the study should offer clear insight into OCT’s ability to influence clinical outcomes. The first patient enrolled within the ILUMIEN III trial was randomized at Columbia University Medical Center and underwent PCI guided by the St. Jude Medical Optis™ Integrated PCI optimization system. During PCI procedures, physicians use diagnostic imaging to make decisions related to stent sizing and to assess how to best keep the artery expanded to restore blood flow to the heart. One key factor in reducing stent failure is increasing the minimal stent area (MSA) and securing appropriate stent expansion during PCI to restore blood flow, a process commonly known as revascularization. Previous research, including findings from the ILUMIEN I and ILUMIEN II studies, has shown that with superior resolution over IVUS and angiography, St. Jude Medical’s OCT imaging technology can influence pre- and post-PCI decision making, stent sizing and deployment. The ILUMIEN III study is the next step in assessing the benefits of OCT guidance in relation to first generation imaging tools. The ILUMIEN III trial aims to enroll up to 420 patients at up to 35 sites across Europe, the U.S. and Japan. All patients will undergo PCI for stable or unstable angina (chest pain caused by insufficient blood flow to the heart), silent ischemia (restricted blood flow to the heart that causes no chest pain), or patients who’ve suffered NSTEMI or STEMI heart attacks due to arterial blockages. Patients will be randomized to undergo PCI with either OCT, angiography or IVUS and the primary endpoint will be the degree of minimum stent area achieved. Physicians assessing patients in the ILUMIEN III study will employ the St. Jude Medical Optis Integrated and ILUMIEN™ Optis™ PCI optimization systems to assess patients randomized to OCT-guided stent implantation.

St. Jude Medical Inc. Announces Encouraging Results from Coronary Artery Disease Studies

St. Jude Medical Inc. has announced results from two clinical studies which support the use of the company's fractional flow reserve, or FFR, technology to optimize percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI, procedures used to restore blood flow to the heart in patients with coronary artery disease. The studies -15-year follow-up to the DEFER study and primary results from the CONTRAST study were presented. Combined, the studies contribute to the growing body of evidence supporting FFR as a valuable and important decision-making tool for physicians. St. Jude Medical's PressureWire FFR technology supports better treatment decisions for patients by providing a more detailed, physiologic analysis of blood flow blockages in the heart. Specifically, FFR can help accurately identify which coronary lesions or blockages are responsible for obstructing the flow of blood to a patient's heart muscle. This insight allows physicians to determine which lesions warrant stenting, resulting in improved patient outcomes and reduced health care costs. In a 15-year follow up study, new data from the DEFER study confirms original and five-year findings. Researchers leading the DEFER study found the positive benefits of decisions based on St. Jude Medical PressureWire FFR guidance were sustained after 15 years. The study also found the risk for a myocardial infarction was 6.5 times lower in patients where treatment was guided by FFR compared to patients in the non-FFR guided group, while finding no negative effect of leaving non-significant lesions untreated. The DEFER study's 15 year data is an important advancement of FFR, because it confirms sustained benefits of FFR guidance over time. After 15 years, DEFER researchers found stenting a non-ischemic stenosis, or narrowing of the blood vessel restricting blood flow to the heart, had no benefit compared to patients treated by standard medical therapy. In addition to a reduction in heart attacks, patients where revascularization was deferred had very low rates of complications compared to patients in which lesions were treated without proof of ischemia. In the CONTRAST study, researchers assessed FFR differently, and compared the gold standard in vascular physiologic assessment, FFR using adenosine, to resting indices (Pd/Pa and iFR) and a new approach to adenosine-free FFR; FFR using contrast medium. Contrast FFR (cFFR), also known as contrast Pd/Pa, is a new diagnostic approach where the hyperemic effect (an increase in blood flow) is induced by contrast medium in place of adenosine. The study found that cFFR provides superior accuracy compared to resting indices such as iFR or resting Pd/Pa. To date, simplifying physiologic assessment using resting indices has resulted in a reduction in accuracy, which has limited adoption. The CONTRAST study found both Pd/Pa and iFR to offer similar rates of accuracy. In addition, the study's researchers concluded cFFR did not add extra cost or procedure time and may be a viable option for situations where the use of adenosine is undesired or contra indicated.
