Intracoronary Stenting and Angiographic Results–Test Efficacy of 3 Limus-Eluting STents - ISAR-TEST-2

Description:

Studies indicate that the polymer involved in drug-eluting stents (DES) may be responsible for some of the adverse effects noted with these stents. Earlier studies with polymer-free DES, however, did not demonstrate an improved antistenotic efficacy over current polymer-based DES. The current trial sought to study the safety and efficacy of incorporation of a second antistenotic agent (probucol) in addition to rapamycin (sirolimus-eluting stents [SES]) on a polymer-free platform, compared with r...
