Drug-Eluting Stents Beat Bare Metal Stents in Diabetics
Date:11/11/2008

rs found no safety differences between the two types of stents. This study showed lower mortality and adverse events.

The Massachusetts Data Analysis Center (Mass-DAC) registry is a special resource to research outcomes after PCI, since the state department of public health requires that every non-federal hospital provide procedural information and outcomes for every adult who undergoes PCI. Such data are intended to monitor and to improve the quality of patient care.

"Through an effort headed by the Division of Health Care Quality at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, we were able to use clinical data collected from every non-federal hospital in the state that treats patients with stents to monitor safety of the drug-eluting stents," said Sharon-Lise Normand, Ph.D., co-author of the study, director of the Mass-DAC and professor of health care policy (biostatistics) at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. "Surveillance systems such as this are critical to assessing quality and safety in the real-world."
