PQ Bypass Unveils New Data From DETOUR I at VIVA 17

Seroba’s investee company, PQ Bypass, today announced data from a subset analysis of the DETOUR I clinical trial during a late-breaking clinical trial session at Vascular InterVentional Advances (VIVA 17), which is taking place September 11-14 in Las Vegas.

The study evaluated the safety and effectiveness of the DETOUR System for treating long-segment (>25cm) blockages in the femoropopliteal artery via a novel, fully percutaneous bypass approach, known as the DETOUR procedure.
The presentation by Sean Lyden, M.D., chairman of the vascular surgery department at Cleveland Clinic, was entitled: Safety and Efficacy of a Novel Percutaneous Bypass Procedure for Long-Segment Femoropopliteal Disease: A Sub-Analysis (>25cm) from the DETOUR I Trial.

Percutaneous femoropopliteal bypass (the DETOUR procedure) is a newly developed procedure that utilizes the proprietary DETOUR System – TORUS Stent Graft, DETOUR Crossing Device and DETOUR Snare – to enable a fully percutaneous bypass of long-segment blockages in the femoropopliteal artery.

The DETOUR procedure creates a pathway around a lesion by placing stent grafts that cross from the femoral artery into the femoral vein and back into the artery.  The new path re-directs oxygen-rich blood around the blockage and restores blood flow to the lower leg and foot of the patient. The restoration of blood flow helps to reduce pain and improve patient mobility, all while limiting the progression of PAD.
