Middle-term results of percutaneous coronary intervention with standard metallic stent "Ephesos II" implantation in patients with coronary heart disease
CARDIOVASCULAR THERAPY AND PREVENTION
Aim. In a non-randomised study, to assess middle-term (9 months) effectiveness and safety of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with "Ephesos II" stent implantation. Material and methods. The study included 41 patients, treated at the Sani Konukoglu Medical Centre, Gaziantep, Turkey. Results. Immediate angiography-confirmed PCI success was achieved in 100 % of the participants. Nine months after the intervention, the percentage of survived patients without restenosis and repeat
... d repeat revascularization was 77,6 %. Control angiography at 9 months was performed in 95,1 % of the patients. The mean in-stent late loss was 0,32±0,25. Restenosis was observed in 22,4 % of the subjects. In all cases of in-stent restenosis, successful repeat PCI was performed. At 9 months, the proportion of the survived patients without moderate to severe cardiac complications and events reached 70,3 %. Conclusion. This non-randomised study demonstrated good short and middle-term results of PCI with standard metallic stent "Ephesos II" implantation.
