Safety Assessment of Femoropopliteal Endovascular Treatment With PAclitaxel-coated Devices (SAFE-PAD Study)

This is an observational retrospective cohort study using claims data to evaluate the long-term safety of paclitaxel-coated devices compared with non-drug coated devices for femoropopliteal artery revascularization, with median follow-up time for the population surpassing 5 years. A series of supplemental sensitivity analyses will be conducted to assess and mitigate the potential for unmeasured confounding and to determine the impact of repeat interventions and paclitaxel exposure on survival. Finally, sub-group analyses will be performed to investigate whether there is differential safety of paclitaxel-coated devices across different patient profiles.
