This is a multicentre, open label, prospective non-randomized registry, with 9-month angiographic follow-up, conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drug-eluting stents (DES) when used in high restenosis risk patients from the real world. METHODS: From June 2004 to February 2005, a total of 1622 consecutive patients were enrolled to the Sicilian DES Registry, according to specific inclusion criteria. Both paclitaxel-eluting and sirolimus-eluting stents were used. The analysis was performed on 1472 patients because 150 patients were excluded from the study. The primary endpoint was to evaluate the rate of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) within 9 months after DES implantation. Major adverse cardiac events were defined as cardiac death, non-Q-wave or Q-wave myocardial infarction (MI) and target vessel revascularization (TVR). The secondary endpoints were procedural success, angiographic binary restenosis and stent thrombosis within 9 months post-procedure. RESULTS: Patients were more frequently male; 472 (32.1%) were diabetics, of whom 130 (27.5%) were treated with insulin. Mean ejection fraction of the left ventricle was 51.5 +/- 8.7%. Multivessel disease was found and treated in 627 patients (42.6%). A total of 2439 lesions were treated with DES. Final angiographic success was achieved in 2422 (99.3%) lesions. Procedural success was achieved in 1422 (96.6%) patients. The 9-month cumulative incidence of MACE was 7.3% with 0.8% of cardiac deaths, 0.8% non-fatal MI, 7.9% TVR. Binary restenosis was observed in 101 patients (8.3%). Stent thrombosis was documented in 11 patients (0.8%). CONCLUSIONS: Drug-eluting stents appear to be safe and associated with a low incidence of MACE at 9-month follow-up, even in patients selected for their complexity

Abstract

This is a multicentre, open label, prospective non-randomized registry, with 9-month angiographic follow-up, conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drug-eluting stents (DES) when used in high restenosis risk patients from the real world. METHODS: From June 2004 to February 2005, a total of 1622 consecutive patients were enrolled to the Sicilian DES Registry, according to specific inclusion criteria. Both paclitaxel-eluting and sirolimus-eluting stents were used. The analysis was performed on 1472 patients because 150 patients were excluded from the study. The primary endpoint was to evaluate the rate of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) within 9 months after DES implantation. Major adverse cardiac events were defined as cardiac death, non-Q-wave or Q-wave myocardial infarction (MI) and target vessel revascularization (TVR). The secondary endpoints were procedural success, angiographic binary restenosis and stent thrombosis within 9 months post-procedure. RESULTS: Patients were more frequently male; 472 (32.1%) were diabetics, of whom 130 (27.5%) were treated with insulin. Mean ejection fraction of the left ventricle was 51.5 +/- 8.7%. Multivessel disease was found and treated in 627 patients (42.6%). A total of 2439 lesions were treated with DES. Final angiographic success was achieved in 2422 (99.3%) lesions. Procedural success was achieved in 1422 (96.6%) patients. The 9-month cumulative incidence of MACE was 7.3% with 0.8% of cardiac deaths, 0.8% non-fatal MI, 7.9% TVR. Binary restenosis was observed in 101 patients (8.3%). Stent thrombosis was documented in 11 patients (0.8%). CONCLUSIONS: Drug-eluting stents appear to be safe and associated with a low incidence of MACE at 9-month follow-up, even in patients selected for their complexity
