Endeavour zotarolimus-eluting stent reduces stent thrombosis and improves clinical outcomes compared with cypher sirolimus-eluting stent: 4-year results of the PROTECT randomized trial
Conclusions Drug-eluting coronary stents with different healing characteristics demonstrated different late safety profiles: after 4 years, compared with C-SES, E-ZES reduced the risk of stent thrombosis and the risk of the composite endpoints of death or MI. Appropriately powered large-scale trials with long-term follow-up are critical to determine clinical safety and efficacy of permanently implanted coronary stents.
