PURPOSE To report a Bayesian network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing bare metal stents (BMS), paclitaxel-coated balloons (PCBs), and drug-eluting stents (DES) with balloon angioplasty (BA) or with each other in the infrapopliteal arteries. METHODS Sixteen RCTs comprising 1805 patients with 1-year median follow-up were analyzed. Bayesian random effects binomial models were employed (WinBUGS). Relative treatment effects were expressed as odds ratios (ORs) with 95… CONTINUE READING
