Results of the PEPCAD-DES trial reported at TCT 2011
Date:11/11/2011

ss or equal to 22 mm. Exclusion criteria were: acute myocardial infarction, chronic total occlusions, lesions in bypass grafts or bifurcations, multiple lesions in the target vessel, left main lesions, ISR in BMS, and/or contraindications for acetylsalicylic acid or clopidogrel.

The length of the balloon in both treatment groups was chosen to overlap the stenotic segment at least 2 mm at the proximal and distal margin. Dual antiplatelet therapy was prescribed for three months in both treatment groups. All patients were scheduled for control angiography at six months. Quantitative coronary analysis was performed in a blinded fashion relative to the treatment groups. The final angiographic follow-up was completed in September 2011.

The primary endpoint was six-month late lumen loss. In the POBA group, late lumen loss was 1.03 0.77; and in the DCB group, late lumen loss was 0.43 0.61. The rate of target lesion revascularization was 36.8% in the POBA group and 15.3% in the DCB group. The rate of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) was 50% in the POBA group and 16.7% in the DCB group.

"Results of this trial showed that for treatment of drug-eluting stent restenosis, a paclitaxel-coated balloon compared with a balloon angioplasty alone showed significantly lower late loss, a significantly lower binary restenosis rate, significantly less major adverse cardiac events, and no definite vessel thrombosis," said lead investigator Harald Rittger, MD from the University of Erlangen in Germany.
