Randomized Evaluation of Sirolimus-eluting versus Everolimus-eluting stent Trial - RESET

Description:

Although numerous studies have outlined the benefit of so-called “second-generation” stents such as Xience V (everolimus-eluting stent [EES]) over the Taxus (paclitaxel-eluting stent) stent (so-called “first-generation”), it is unclear if Xience V is truly superior to the other “first-generation” stent: Cypher (sirolimus-eluting stent [SES]). The current trial sought to compare the relative efficacies of the Xience V and Cypher stents for target lesion revascularization (TLR) at 12 months...
