XienceV Stent vs Cypher Stent in Primary PCI for Acute Myocardial Infarction - XAMI

Description:

Although there have been a few head-to-head studies comparing so-called “second-generation” drug-eluting stents (DES) such as everolimus-eluting stents (EES) with “first-generation” DES such as sirolimus-eluting stents (SES), no randomized controlled trials have compared EES to SES in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). The XAMI trial sought to compare outcomes of EES and SES implantation in a real-...
