Basel Stent Kosten-Effektivitäts Trial–PROspective Validation Examination II - BASKET-PROVE II


It has been hypothesized that very late stent thrombosis is a result of the polymer coating of drug-eluting stents. A biodegradable polymer might retain stent efficacy while enhancing safety. The goal of the trial was to evaluate treatment with a biodegradable-polymer drug-eluting stent versus a durable-polymer drug-eluting stent versus a thin-strut bare-metal stent.
