He will review safety and efficacy data collected through 12 months of follow-up for 35 subjects with occlusive disease of the infra-popliteal arteries who were treated at study sites in Australia, New Zealand, and locations in Europe. Study subjects will be followed for 36 months after the index procedure. Professor Andrew Holden, MBChB, FRANZCR, EBIR, ONZM, Director of Northern Region Interventional Radiology Service at Auckland City Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand, is also a co-lead investigator for the SWING Trial.

The Sundance Sirolimus Drug-Coated Balloon utilizes a next-generation coating technology consisting of microcrystalline sirolimus and a proprietary excipient designed to maximize drug transfer, enhancing sirolimus delivery and sustaining therapeutic levels in the artery. Sirolimus, a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative compound, has been used successfully in coronary drug-eluting stents. The delivery of sirolimus to the vessel wall during mechanical balloon dilatation provides an ancillary action of inhibiting the proliferation of cells, with the intended purpose of reducing restenosis. The Sundance Sirolimus Drug-Coated Balloon is not available for sale anywhere in the world, and currently is for investigational use only.
