Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The Volcano Vascular Imaging Balloon Catheter is used for imaging and/or dilatation of native and/or stented coronary arteries. The catheter is administered through a guide catheter during a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure in a cath lab, and is expected to be in the body for less than 10 minutes.
Intervention code [1] 256324 0
Treatment: Devices
Comparator / control treatment
There is no control for this study.
Control group

Primary outcome [1] 258230 0
Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE): Cardiovascular Death, Non Fatal Myocardial Infarction, and Target Vessel Revascularization. These will be assessed by electrocardiogram (ECG) and lab draws for cardiac enzymes.
Timepoint [1] 258230 0
At 30 days post procedure.
Primary outcome [2] 258231 0
Change in minimum lesion diameter by coronary angiography
Timepoint [2] 258231 0
Post balloon dilatation
Primary outcome [3] 258232 0
Repeatability of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) image measurements pre- and post balloon dilatation, as assessed by a core laboratory.
Timepoint [3] 258232 0
Pre- and post balloon dilatation
Secondary outcome [1] 263899 0
Major Adverse Cardiac Events: Cardiovascular Death, Non Fatal Myocardial Infarction, and Target Vessel Revascularization. These will be assessed by ECG and lab draws for cardiac enzymes.
Timepoint [1] 263899 0
During the procedure, post procedure, and at hospital discharge.

Key exclusion criteria
-Currently participating in an investigational drug or another device trial that has not completed the primary endpoint or that clinically interferes with the current trial endpoints; or requires coronary angiography, IVUS or other coronary artery imaging procedures.
-Any patient scheduled to have a percutaneous or surgical coronary intervention within 30 days of the index procedure using the Volcano Vascular Imaging Balloon Catheter.
-Any complications due to stenting prior to imaging or dilatation with the Volcano Vascular Imaging Balloon Catheter.
-Any contraindications for IVUS interrogation as determined by the investigator.
-A Q-wave or non–Q-wave myocardial infarction (MI) within 72 hours of the procedure, with an initial creatine kinase (CK) level of more than twice the upper limit of normal and CK and creatine kinase–myocardial band isoenzyme (CK-MB) fraction persistently abnormal at the time of the procedure.
-More than 50% unprotected left main coronary stenosis or more than 50% stenosis of additional lesions proximal or distal to the target lesion either by visual assessment or by Quantitative Coronary Angiography (QCA).
-Clinical cardiac failure as defined by New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV.
-American College of Cardiology (ACC)/ American Heart Association (AHA) lesion Type C.
-Braunwald classification of unstable angina A III.
-Ostial lesions.
-Total occlusions.
-Any target lesion containing severe calcification that precludes successful predilatation.
-Severe vessel tortuosity or any angiographic evidence of thrombus.
-Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) of less than 30% at the most recent evaluation.
-Subjects unwilling or unable to comply with the protocol.
