A hierarchical Bayesian meta-analysis of randomised clinical trials of drug-eluting stents.


BACKGROUND Drug-eluting stents (DES) are associated with lower restenosis rates than bare-metal stents (BMS), but the benefits and safety of the new devices have not been systematically quantified across different trials. We undertook a meta-analysis of randomised trials comparing BMS and stents eluting sirolimus or paclitaxel. METHODS A systematic… (More)
