PCI -Long-term outcome

European Heart Journal ( 2017 ) 38 ( Supplement ), 1291-1292

Background: There is limited long-term clinical outcome data comparing first- versus second-generation drug-eluting stents (DESs) in patients with coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) who underwent successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Purpose: We investigated the 5-year major clinical outcomes of first- versus second-generation DESs in coronary CTO lesions.

Methods: A total of 822 consecutive patients who underwent PCI with DESs for CTO lesions were enrolled. Finally, 326 patients (first generation, n=153 vs second generation, n=173) were enrolled. To adjust baseline confounders, a propensity score matched (PSM) analysis was performed and 2 propensity-matched groups (128 pairs, n=256, C-statistic = 0.643) were generated. Cumulative major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) up to 5 years were compared between the two groups.

Results: During the 5-year follow-up, the cumulative incidences of total MACEs (HR, 2.40; 95% CI, 1.27–4.53; p=0.007) and target lesion revascularization (TLR: HR, 2.67; 95% CI, 1.14–6,28; p=0.024), target vessel revascularization (TVR: HR, 2.75; 95% CI, 1.23–6.11; p=0.013) were higher in the first-generation DESs group compared with the second-generation group after PSM (Table and Figure).

Conclusion(s): During 5-year follow-up, first-generation DESs showed higher incidence of MACEs, TLR and TVR rates in CTO patients than second-generation DESs following successful PCI. However, the incidence of total death and myocardial infarction were similar between the two groups.
