Agenda: On October 13, 2011, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on information related to the premarket approval application (PMA) for the Cook, Inc., ZILVER-PTX Drug-Eluting Stent. The ZILVER-PTX Stent is a self-expanding nitinol stent coated on its outer surface with the cytotoxic drug paclitaxel without any polymer, binder, or excipient at a dose density of 3 micrograms/square millimeter. The ZILVER-PTX Stent is available in diameters ranging from 5 to 10 millimeters (mm) and lengths of 20 to 80 mm and are pre-loaded onto 6 or 7 Fr [1] (diameter of 2 or 2.3 mm) delivery systems. Upon deployment, the ZILVER-PTX Stent expands to establish and maintain patency in the stented region. The proposed indications for use are: treatment of de novo or restenotic symptomatic vascular disease of the above-the-knee femoropopliteal arteries having reference vessel diameter from 4 mm to 9 mm and total lesion lengths per patient of 280 mm.

FDA intends to make background material available to the public no later than 2 business days before the meeting.
