Abbott Launches ILUMIEN IV Trial To Drive Home Case For OCT

Executive Summary

ILUMIEN IV is the largest-ever prospective randomized trial to compare an intravascular imaging modality, plus angiography, to angiography alone in coronary interventions, according to Abbott. The trial will enroll up to 3,650 patients with high-risk complex disease at 125 centers in North America, Europe and Asia to determine if OCT-guided stenting yields larger vessel diameters and improves clinical outcomes for patients compared to stent procedures guided by standard angiography.
