We applaud FDA’s work in the best interest of patients. Cook is pleased that clinicians and patients will continue to have access to important technologies like Zilver PTX. We will continue to collaborate with FDA, clinicians, industry partners and medical societies to provide the data needed to make informed decisions on treatment options.
Zilver PTX is the only peripheral drug-eluting stent with long-term data. More than 300,000 Zilver PTX stents have been used over the past decade to provide a better quality of life for patients suffering from PAD. Zilver PTX has shown a sustained clinical benefit by providing greater than 40% reduction in both restenosis and reintervention through five years1.
