Principal investigator John Webb, MD
Description This is a non-randomized, prospective, multicenter safety and device success study. Two hundred fifty (250) patients are planned to be enrolled at up to 20 participating investigational centers in Europe and Canada. Patient participation will last for a minimum of 5 years. Patients will be assessed at the following intervals: baseline, hospital discharge, 30 days, 1 year and annually thereafter for a minimum of 5 years.
