Resultate nach Rekanalisation chronisch verschlossener Herzkranzgefäße nach Stentimplantation & Nachdilatation mit einem medikamentfreisetzenden Ballon
Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of paclitaxel-coated balloon plus bare-metal stenting (BMS) in chronic total occlusions (CTOs) in comparison with paclitaxel-eluting stent (DES). In this prospective, bicenter trial 48 patients were treated with paclitaxel-coated balloon plus BMS after successful chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization in a native coronary artery. Patients were matched according to stent length, reference diameter, and diabetes mellitus with 48 patients treated with Taxus stent implantation. Primary endpoint was in-stent late lumen loss. In conclusion the use of paclitaxel-coated balloon after bare-metal stenting in complex CTOs was associated with similar clinical results and a nonsignificantly higher in-stent late loss compared with the matched population with paclitaxel-eluting stent implantation.
