BACKGROUND The relative safety of drug-eluting stents and bare-metal stents, especially with respect to stent thrombosis, continues to be debated. In view of the overall low frequency of stent thrombosis, large sample sizes are needed to accurately estimate treatment differences between stents. We compared the risk of thrombosis between bare-metal and drug-eluting stents. METHODS For this network meta-analysis, randomised controlled trials comparing different drug-eluting stents or drug… CONTINUE READING
