The COPPER-A Trial: The Occlusion Perfusion Catheter for Optimal Delivery of Paclitaxel for the Prevention of Endovascular Restenosis – Above the Knee


The purpose of this research study is to determine if the use of a catheter for the delivery of paclitaxel will prevent re-narrowing of a blockage to be treated in the leg.   

Patients that have a blockage in the artery of their legs are being asked to participate in this study. Participants will receive a procedure to prevent re-narrowing of the blockage in the leg. A drug will be delivered to the location of the blockage that will be opened up by the physician. A catheter, which is a small tube, will be used to deliver the drug, and the drug is called paclitaxel.
