Medtronic plc announced the launch of the Prevail drug coated balloon (DCB) Catheter in Europe following CE (Conformité Européene) mark. The newest coronary DCB on the market, the Prevail DCB is used during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures to treat narrowed or blocked coronary arteries in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). During the catheter-based procedure, the balloon inflates within the artery, while the drug is delivered to the arterial tissue where it is absorbed. The Prevail DCB utilizes a rapid absorption drug paclitaxel to enable treatment of de novo lesions, small vessel disease, and in-stent restenosis (ISR). DCB angioplasty does not require a permanent implant and is often used in cases where the implantation of a drug-eluting stent (DES) is not desirable or is technically challenging. The Prevail DCB builds on the excellent safety and efficacy demonstrated in the previous generation IN.PACT Falcon DCB clinical program and was reaffirmed by the PREVAIL Study presented at the 2020 PCR e-Course conference. In the PREVAIL Study, the Prevail DCB showed exceptional performance in patients with complex lesions, including those with small vessels and those treated for in-stent restenosis, which occurs when a portion of a stented artery is blocked. The Prevail DCB showed favorable late loss (0.05 ± 0.44 mm) at 6 months and a strong safety profile that included no stent thrombosis, target vessel myocardial infarction (TVMI), or cardiac death and low clinically driven target lesion revascularization (6%) out to one year for all patients. The Prevail DCB uses PowerTrac, the same enhanced technology used in the delivery system for the Medtronic Resolute Onyx DES, to provide superior deliverability and two times more pushability than the previous IN.PACT Falcon technology enabling greater control for tortuous anatomies. In addition, Prevail DCB has a low crossing profile for exceptional crossability. The Prevail DCB is the latest addition to the Medtronic coronary portfolio, which also includes the market-leading Resolute Onyx DES in sizes ranging from 2.0-5.0 mm, the Euphora semicompliant balloon dilatation catheter, the DxTerity Diagnostic Angiography Catheter line, and the Telescope Guide Extension Catheter. The Prevail DCB is available for use in Europe and is not approved in the U.S. In collaboration with leading clinicians, researchers and scientists worldwide, Medtronic offers the broadest range of innovative medical technology for the interventional and surgical treatment of cardiovascular disease and cardiac arrhythmias. The company strives to offer products and services that deliver clinical and economic value to healthcare consumers and providers around the world.
