Actual Study Start Date  ICMJE October 22, 2020

Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: September 3, 2020)
  • Procedural success during the first 30 days [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    XABG technology performs as intended with successful proximal and distal anastomoses and graft patency at the conclusion of the procedure and at 30 days. Patency is defined as a diameter stenosis less than 50%
  • Freedom from device related Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE Same as current
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: September 3, 2020)
  • Intimal hyperplasia area [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Assessed by OCT
  • Graft patency [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, 12 months ]
    Patency defined as a diameter stenosis less than 50%
  • Lumen diameter uniformity [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, 12 months ]
    Using Fitzgibbon's 3-point ordinal uniformity scale
  • Freedom from Major Adverse Cardiac and Cerebrovascular Events (MACCE) [ Time Frame: 30 days, 6 months, 12 months, and yearly until 5 years ]
    Absence of device related SAEs
  • Freedom from vein harvesting related wound infection, non-infective wound healing disturbances, and leg pain [ Time Frame: 30 days and 6 months ]
    Leg pain will be assessed by standard 10-point VAS scale and presented as descriptive statistics
  • Composite of all causes of mortality - (cerebrovascular stroke, myocardial infarction, re-operation, or intervention) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Assessed for XABG and Saphenous vein graft (SVG) separately

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All gender, 19 years of age or older with a minimum life expectancy of 2 years
  • Elective patient, selected and accepted by the local Heart Team and confirmed by the Screening Committee for an on-pump full sternotomy CABG surgery
  • IMA conduit indicated and feasible for the LAD, SVG CABG indicated and feasible for the circumflex artery (LCX) and right coronary artery (RCA) territories
  • Native coronary vessels with proximal occlusion and/or critical stenosis. XABG target vessel with a diameter of ≥ 2 mm and sufficient distal run-off (thrombolysis in myocardial infarction risk (TIMI)-Score ≥ 2).
  • Patient has been informed of the nature of the study, agrees to its provisions, and has provided written informed consent
  • Patient has been informed and agrees to pre- and post-procedure follow-up, including follow-up CT/MRI scan and coronary angiogram
  • Patient is suitable for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures in case of required emergent procedures at discretion of the local Heart Team

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any previous open-heart surgery or surgical/transcatheter procedure resulting in complex CABG surgery and/or suboptimal cardiovascular imaging of the chest
  • History of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation
  • Concomitant cardiac surgery (e.g. valve treatment, ablation)
  • No or insufficient intrathoracic arteries and/or saphenous veins available to undergo full CABG procedure (i.e. treat all target vessels)
  • Myocardial infarction (MI) within 21 days or cerebral vascular accident (CVA) within 90 days prior to the CABG procedure
  • Left ventricular ejection fraction ≤ 35%
  • Severe kidney disease, renal dysfunction (Cr> 2.0mg/dL) or Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) < 50mL/min or active dialysis patients
  • Moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with a forced expiratory volume (FEV) <1.5 lit/sec
  • Endocarditis, pericarditis, or any other active systemic infection that would interfere with subject safety
  • Active bleeding disorder and/or any coagulopathy or thromboembolic disease or other indication requiring anticoagulation
  • Known Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT)
  • Abnormal blood values (e.g. leukopenia, anemia or thrombocytopenia) that could influence graft hemostasis or patient recovery.
  • Condition requiring immunosuppressive therapy or any chronic inflammatory/autoimmune disease or medication that likely interferes with restorative therapies
  • Allergies to study device (Nitinol) or agents/medication, such as contrast agents, antiplatelet therapy, beta-blocker, statins required for study assessment or optimal post-CABG medical treatment (hospital SOC)
  • Need for emergency surgery for any reason and/or intervention/surgery prior to and within 12 months after the CABG surgery that requires antiplatelet therapy discontinuation
  • Currently in investigational device or drug study or participated in the last 30 days
  • Pregnancy or females currently lactating or of childbearing potential who are sexually active and are not willing to use adequate contraceptive precautions for the next 2 years
  • Subject has medical, social or psychosocial factors that, in the opinion of the Investigator, could impact safety or compliance
  • Has any other condition, in the opinion of the principal investigator, which would put the patient at increased risk from participating in the study or otherwise prevent participation

Intra-operative exclusion criteria:

  • Severe calcified aorta (porcelain aorta) or diseased aorta that precludes proximal vein graft anastomoses
  • No or insufficient intrathoracic artery and/or saphenous veins available to undergo full CABG procedure (i.e. treat all target vessels).
  • Unsuccessful IMA anastomosis
  • After chest opening and visual inspection identification of active pericarditis/endocarditis and/or diffuse calcification in target vessels and/or any other reason precluding sufficient distal XABG and/or SVG anastomoses.
  • Smaller distal coronary artery and/or poor distal run-off as initially expected based on the coronary angiogram.
  • Hemodynamic instability before XABG attempt
