Biolimus still comparable to everolimus in year 2 of stent match-up
Date:3/31/2014

had an excess risk for stent thrombosis or heart attack compared with second-generation everolimus stents with a durable coating," said Masahiro Natsuaki, M.D., Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine's Cardiovascular Medicine Department. "However, we found no significant differences between the BES and EES groups. There was no apparent signal suggesting either improvement or impairment of clinical outcomes with one stent or the other."

Natsuaki cautioned that underreporting of adverse events, especially stent thrombosis, is possible because study participants were not fully monitored. But angiograms in patients with target vessel revascularization were rigorously evaluated for blood clots at an angiographic core laboratory, and "adjudication of death and heart attack events was conducted very carefully" to rule out stent thrombosis, he said.

Because the BES biodegradable polymer takes up to a year to disappear, any differences in outcome between the two stent types will be evident only after the first year. "The advantage of polymer degradation and no permanent polymer in the vessel wall could emerge with longer-term follow up," Natsuaki said. If year-three results confirm that outcomes with BES are at least equal to EES, patients with complex lesions requiring heart bypass surgery could be candidates for additional studies, he said.
