What to Expect if You Participate in the LIFE-BTK Study

The study will compare the Esprit™ BTK device to the balloon angioplasty procedure to open the leg arteries.

Study participants will have in-person visits with a dedicated team of specialists focused on their care for a total of 5 years. The number of visits with your doctor is not any more than you would have if you weren't part of the study. For in-person visits with your doctor, you may be eligible for assistance with transportation. There is also the option of having your care visit for the study done at home.

Dr. Sahil, LIFE-BTK Co-Principal Investigator, explains a key factor in the relationship between physicians and patients in clinical studies.

Before you are enrolled, you will be screened to make sure you are a good candidate for the LIFE-BTK study.

The screening may include:

  • Review of your medical history with a study representative
  • Laboratory tests
  • Assessment of wound(s) on the leg or feet (if applicable)
  • Angiogram (type of X-ray) to diagnose where the blockage is in your vessel

What happens if you pass the screening process?

  1. You will be assessed in person at the treatment center and then registered in the study
  2. You will be assigned to a treatment group
  3. You will have the procedure to treat your blocked vessel
  4. You will have 10 study visits over a 5-year period, at the following time points. These doctor visits are not more than what you would receive if you were not in a study.
