Abstract

Background: Restenosis is the most common long-term complication after angioplasty. Local delivery of pharmacologic agents at the site of angioplasty holds promise as a means of achieving higher concentrations of drug in the arterial wall than can be obtained by systemic infusion. In this study, a novel local drug delivery catheter system, the InfusaSleeve(TM) catheter, was evaluated in a porcine coronary balloon injury model. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of solute transfer to the arterial wall and the influence of varying supporting angioplasty balloon pressure. Methods and Results: Ten pigs (total of 22 arterial segments) underwent overstretch balloon injury (artery/balloon ratio 1:1.29) with a standard angioplasty balloon. In 7 animals (16 arterial segments) horseradish peroxidase (HRP; 10 mg/ml) was administered locally after injury, by tracking the local infusion catheter as a sheath over the angioplasty balloon to the intended site of arterial drug delivery. Supporting angioplasty balloons were inflated to one of the three different pressures. In 3 pigs HRP (10 mg/ml) was administered intravenously. No significant arterial injury caused by the local delivery device was evident on histological examination (disruption of the internal lamina elastica, arterial media, or thrombosis). Radial concentrations of the HRP reaction product in the first 150 μm of the arterial wall were quantified against known standards by measurement of light transmission through tissue sections. Mean HRP concentrations were not significantly different from those obtained by intravenous infusion using a supporting pressure of 1 atm or a supporting pressure of 3 aim of the underlying angioplasty balloon. However, a supporting pressure of 6 atm resulted in a 6-fold greater mean HRP concentration in the arterial wall than that which could be achieved by systemic administration of an equal volume of tracer (P < 0.001). Conclusion: Thus solute can be delivered throughout the coronary media by the InfusaSleeve, with the magnitude of wall uptake related to support pressure. Local delivery at 6 atm support pressure produced substantially greater uptake than did systemic delivery.
