CONTEXT Compared with bare metal stents, drug-eluting stents reduce restenosis in noncomplex lesions. The utility of drug-eluting stents has not been evaluated in more difficult stenoses. OBJECTIVE To investigate the safety and efficacy of the polymer-based, slow-release paclitaxel-eluting stent in a patient population with more complex lesions than previously studied. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS Prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter randomized trial conducted from… CONTINUE READING
