Abstract

Introduction: Gradual prolonged balloon angioplasty may cause less arterial trauma, higher success rates, and fewer complications than conventional angioplasty (POBA). The OFFAR aimed to determine the safety and effectiveness of the FX MiniRAIL™ (FX) catheter, used with a slow, stepwise inflation protocol. Methods and Results: From June to December 2003, 181 consecutive patients (age 61.9 ± 10.6 years) with de novo coronary artery lesions (n = 217) were treated by FX and stent implantation in 11 European centers. Fifty-one patients (28.2%) had diabetes, and 70 (38.7%) had prior MI; 73 patients (40.3%) presented with stable angina and 85 (47.0%) with unstable angina. Fifty-five lesions (25.3%) were in small vessels (18 mm). Stenosis resolution pressure was 7.17 ± 4.2 atm; inflation time was 116.5 ± 54.6 seconds. FX technical success (residual stenosis
