The Freeway Stent Study was lead-managed by Prof. Dr. Josef Tacke, Klinikum Passau, Germany. The multicenter, open, prospective randomized study investigated the prevention of restenosis in the treatment of Superficial Femoral Artery (SFA) or Popliteal artery (PI-segment) lesions in the legs. The study examined whether implantation of a Nitinol stent followed by post-dilatation with a drug-eluting balloon (DEB) FREEWAYTM is advantageous over Nitinol stenting and post-dilatation by a plain balloon (POBA). The study was conducted in 13 sites in Germany and Austria. 204 patients suffering from de novo lesions that needed to be stented were enrolled and randomized in a 1:1 ratio. Patients have been followed at 6 and 12 months.
