ECLIPSE Trial Summary

This trial will compare two methods for treating severely calcified heart arteries before implantation of a drug-eluting stent.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with stable heart disease or recent heart attacks who've consented to the study. It's not for those with a short life expectancy, planned cardiac interventions within a year (except certain PCIs), contraindications to antiplatelet/anticoagulant therapy, cognitive issues affecting participation, pregnancy, chemotherapy within 30 days of the procedure, sensitivity to contrast media that can't be pre-medicated, prior heart transplant or PCI in target vessel within a year.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The ECLIPSE Trial compares Orbital Atherectomy and conventional balloon angioplasty before placing drug-eluting stents in severely calcified arteries. Participants are randomly assigned one of these treatments to see which is more effective at preparing arteries for stent placement.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include bleeding due to dual antiplatelet therapy or anticoagulants required post-procedure; complications from the angioplasty such as artery dissection or blockage; reactions related to contrast media used during procedures; and general risks associated with invasive cardiac procedures.

ECLIPSE Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Active Control
Group I: Orbital Atherectomy (OA)Active Control1 Intervention
The Diamondback 360® Coronary Orbital Atherectomy System (OAS) will be used for orbital atherectomy (OA) vessel preparation prior to implantation of a drug-eluting stent.
Group II: Conventional Balloon AngioplastyActive Control1 Intervention
Coronary balloons cleared or approved for commercial use by the Food and Drug Administration will be used for conventional balloon angioplasty prior to implantation of a drug-eluting stent.
