ESC Congress 2017: BIOTRONIK’s Orsiro Drug-Eluting Stent Outperforms Xience in BIOFLOW-V Trial

Landmark Data Published by The Lancet Demonstrates Statistically Significant Lower Event Rates with Orsiro

BIOTRONIK today announced data from the BIOFLOW-V randomized trial comparing Orsiro1 and Xience2 drug-eluting stents (DES) with 12-month target lesion failure (TLF) as the primary endpoint proving non-inferiority. Results presented at the European Society of Cardiology’s ESC Congress 2017 and published by The Lancet show 6.2 percent versus 9.6 percent 12-month TLF rate, demonstrating statistically significant improved clinical outcomes with Orsiro in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

This pivotal US investigational device exemption (IDE) trial included a large, complex patient population and was designed in collaboration with the FDA to support an upcoming premarket approval submission. Orsiro is currently commercially available in more than 100 countries worldwide.
