Abstract 16836: Comparison of 4 Years Efficacy and Durability of Sirolimus-Eluting Stent and Paclitaxel- Eluting Stent Deployment in Patients with Very Long Coronary Lesions: Multicenter Registry in Asia
Aim: The aim of this study is to compare the 4 years safety and durability of Sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) and Paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) deployment on the outcome of patients with very long coronary lesions (VLL).
Methods: A prospective analysis of 656 patients 730 lesions (male 70.4%, mean age 66.9 yrs) with very long coronary lesion (≥40mm) (368 SES and 288 PES) in five high volume Asian centers after successful stenting in VLL was performed. Lesion locations of VLL were LAD 48.2%, LCX 18.5%, RCA 33.3%. Complete clinical follow-up to 4 years is being analyzed for all patients.
Results: The baseline clinical characteristics between 2 groups were similar. At 4 years overall cardiac events of SES (16.3%) were lower than PES (24.0%) (p=0.03). See table for clinical results.
Conclusions: The use of SES and PES in patients with very long coronary lesion was safe and feasible with low acute complication and low incidence of restenosis. SES showed lesser incidence of cardiac events (death, myocardial infarction, CABG and PCI) at 4 years clinical follow-up.
