An 'important' reduction in risk of stent thrombosis with everolimus-eluting stent
Date:8/30/2011

Results of the independently-funded Bern-Rotterdam cohort study provide robust evidence of an "important" reduction in overall and very late stent thrombosis. The reduction in incidence was found when a newer generation everolimus-eluting stent (EES) was compared with early generation drug-eluting stents (DES) at long-term follow-up.

"The near elimination of stent thrombosis observed between one and four years after implantation shows that everolimus-eluting stents overcome the principal limitation of early generation DES," said investigator Dr Lorenz Rber from the University Hospital of Bern, Switzerland. "This an important advance in the safety of DES."

As background to the study, Dr Rber notes that the introduction of DES, which release anti-proliferative drugs from a polymer on the stent surface to prevent the formation of excessive scar tissue within the metallic scaffold (restenosis), was an important advance in the field of interventional cardiology, as revascularisation due to restenosis was significantly decreased. However, after the introduction of DES, data indicated that the formation of normal scar tissue was occasionally inhibited to such an extent that the stents were left uncovered. This was partly explained by inflammatory reactions against the polymer coating, presdisposing to stent thrombosis.

Although rare, stent thrombosis is a serious complication, which may result in death or acute myocardial infarction. Stent thrombosis occurring more than one year after implantation commonly referred to as very late stent thrombosis (VLST) has been observed more frequently in patients treated with early generation DES releasing the drugs paclitaxel or sirolimus than with bare metal stents and has emerged as a distinct entity complicating their use. The Bern-Rotterdam group has previously reported a steady annual risk of VLST of 0.6% up to five years following the implantation of early generation DES, a finding that has bee
