Analysis of drug-eluting stents data demonstrates safety, efficacy in on-and-off-label use
Date:6/16/2009

nsistent with both on-label and off-label use of DES.

And in the 34-study observational meta-analysis (involving more than 180,000 "real-world" patients), "DES resulted in significant 22% and 13% reductions in death and MI, respectively, with a similar reduction in TVR (46%) as in the randomized trials, even after adjustment for confounding variables," said Dr. Stone. "These data are reassuring that DES are safe and effective for a wide-range of patients that are able to take dual antiplatelet therapy for at least one year."

The findings were consistent and robust across a variety of study designs; trials that were included were required to follow patients for at least one year.

Dr. Kirtane remarked that these findings should help to reassure patients and physicians about the safety of DES in off-label use.

"One of the interesting aspects of this analysis is that it points to significant differences between results obtained from randomized trials and observational analyses. Nonetheless, even with the stated limitations of observational data, the bottom line from both randomized trials and observational analyses is consistent: we can reduce the need for repeat procedures and we do not appear to be harming patients with DES," he added.
