Largest ever analysis of DES data demonstrates safety, efficacy in on-and-off-label use
Date:3/27/2008

in TVR (47%) 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 and even in trials incorporating longer-term follow-up; 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.

Even with the stated limitations of registry data, the bottom line from both randomized trials and observational analyses is consistent: we can reduce the need for repeat procedures and we clearly are not harming patients with DES, he added.
