Abstract 2520: Drug-Eluting Stents for the Treatment of Chronic Total Occlusion: A Comparison with Sirolimus, Paclitaxel, Zotarolimus, EPC Capture and Everolimus-Eluting Stent: Multicenter Registry in Asia
The aim of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of Sirolimus (SES), Paclitaxel (PES), Zotarolimus (ZES), EPC capture (ECS) and Everolimus-eluting stent (EES) on the outcome of patients with chronic total occlusion (CTO). A prospective analysis of 1149 patients with 1183 CTOs (396 SES, 526 PES, 177 ZES, 41 ECS, 43 EES) in five high volume Asian centers after successful recanalization of CTO was performed. The study endpoints were 30 days and 9 months major adverse cardiac events (MACE), 9 months angiographic restenosis and target lesion revascularization (TLR). See table⇓ for clinical results. The use of drug-eluting stents in patients with CTO was safe with low acute complication. Patients treated with SES and EES showed lesser rate of restenosis compared with other drug-eluting stents.
