Sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation has been shown to reduce repeat revascularization in various randomized trials. The present study evaluated the outcomes after SES implantation in 46 octogenarian patients. SES implantation in octogenarians appears to be feasible and is associated with very small subsequent need for repeat target vessel(More)
A total of 91 patients with 112 lesions received 2.25-mm sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs), and these lesions were compared with those treated with SESs of > or =2.5-mm diameter in the same procedure (n = 109). The reference diameters were 1.88 +/- 0.34 and 2.52 +/- 0.57 mm, respectively (p <0.01). At follow-up, the late lumen loss was 0.07 +/- 0.48 mm for(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to determine whether a single intravenous infusion of 25 mg/kg CDP860, a humanized di-Fab' fragment against PDGF-beta receptor, leads to a reduction of in-stent restenosis. METHODS In this phase II, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre study 145 patients presenting with stable or unstable angina were randomized to a(More)
