Efficacy of the COronary SInus Reducer in Patients With Refractory Angina II
To demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Reducer system for treatment of patients with refractory angina pectoris treated with maximally tolerated guideline-directed medical therapy who demonstrate objective evidence of reversible myocardial ischemia in the distribution of the left coronary artery and who are deemed unsuitable for revascularization. A non-randomized single-arm will further assess the safety and effectiveness of the Neovasc Reducer System in selected subjects with reversible myocardial ischemia in the distribution of the right coronary artery and who are deemed unsuitable for revascularization, subjects with reversible myocardial ischemia without documented obstructive coronary disease and subjects who cannot complete an exercise tolerance test due to an above-the-ankle amputation.
The COSIRA-II study is a multicenter, randomized (1:1 ratio), double-blinded, sham-controlled clinical trial.

You can join if…
Open to people ages 18 years and up
- Subject is older than 18 years of age
Symptomatic coronary artery disease (CAD) with greater than or equal to 90 days of persistent refractory angina pectoris classified as CCS Grade III or IV despite maximally tolerated guideline directed medical therapy as determined by the local heart team and confirmed by a Central Screening Eligibility Committee.
Note: subjects may also have exertional dyspnea, but the symptoms that limit activity must be anginal in nature (including chest pain, pressure, heaviness, discomfort, with or without radiation to the neck, jaw, shoulders, arms, or other location) and not dyspnea
- Must have attempted treatment with the maximally tolerated dose of at least three of the four (preferably all four) approved classes of anti-anginal agents: long-acting nitrates, calcium channel blockers (either a dihydropyridine or a non-dihydropyridine), beta blockers, and ranolazine. The regimen must be stable for at least 60 days prior to enrollment, must remain stable from enrollment to randomization, and there must be no intent to change the medical regimen for at least 12 months after randomization Note: If the dose of a medication was increased or decreased for a temporary period and then returned to the original dose, which will then be continued for at least 12 months after randomization, the subject may be immediately enrolled without needing to otherwise requalify.
- Subject has either no treatment options for revascularization by coronary artery bypass grafting or by percutaneous coronary intervention, or is otherwise unsuitable or high risk for revascularization as determined by the local heart team, and confirmed by a Central Screening Eligibility Committee
Evidence of either exercise or pharmacologically induced reversible ischemia severity by stress echo, nuclear study, PET, perfusion MRI, CT perfusion, FFRCT, FFR, iFR, or other non-hyperemic FDA approved tests in the distribution of the left coronary artery (LCA), performed within 12 months prior to enrollment and while the patient is maintained on their stable regimen of maximally tolerated doses of anti-anginal medications.
Note: If the subject has evidence of ischemia in both the LCA and RCA distributions, the extent of ischemia must be greater in the LCA distribution.
Note: The qualifying assessment must be performed after any myocardial infarction, CABG, or successful PCI within the prior 12 months. If the anti-anginal medication regimen is permanently changed after the assessment of ischemia, the test must be repeated. For subjects with multiple assessments, the one performed closest to enrollment will serve as the qualifying study.
Functional limitation due to refractory angina as defined by a modified Bruce exercise tolerance test duration of greater than or equal to 2 minutes but less than or equal to 8 minutes, performed while the subject is maintained on their stable regimen of maximally tolerated doses of anti-anginal medications.
Note: The ETT variability must be less than 20% between last two ETTs performed.
- Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) greater than or equal to 30% within the 12-months prior to enrollment Note: The LVEF must be reassessed after any intervening myocardial infarction. For subjects with multiple assessments, the most recent LVEF assessment is used as the qualifying test.
- Subject is willing and able to sign informed consent
Subject is willing to comply with the specified follow-up evaluations
Angiographic Inclusion Criteria: 1) Three-vessel coronary angiography performed within 12 months prior to enrollment demonstrating obstructive CAD (visually estimated diameter stenosis of ≥70% or ≥50% - <70% with fractional flow reserve (FFR) value of ≤0.80 or an iFR or other FDA-approved/cleared non-hyperemic physiological assessment of ≤0.89 in one or more lesions) in the left coronary artery (main epicardial vessels or branches) that is not suitable for and will not be treated with PCI or CABG as determined by the local heart team. Note: The qualifying 3-vessel angiogram must be performed after any myocardial infarction, PCI, or CABG within the 12 months prior to enrollment. For patients with multiple 3-vessel angiograms, the one performed closest to enrollment will serve as the qualifying study.
