TAXUS(R) Liberte(R) Stent Continues to Demonstrate Significant Improvements Over TAXUS(R) Express(R) Stent in Small Vessels and Long Lesions
Date:9/22/2009

e safety measure of cardiac death or myocardial infarction (MI, commonly referred to as heart attack) remained numerically lower at three years for the TAXUS Liberte Atom Stent as compared to the TAXUS Express Atom Stent (6.5% vs. 7.4%, p=0.79).

"The TAXUS ATLAS Small Vessel Trial showed a sustained and significantly reduced risk of revascularization in small vessels for the TAXUS Liberte Atom Stent as compared to the TAXUS Express Atom Stent out to three years," said Mark A. Turco, M.D., Director of the Center for Cardiac and Vascular Research, Washington Adventist Hospital, and Co-Principal Investigator of the trial. "Positive three-year data from the TAXUS ATLAS Long Lesion Trial showed the TAXUS Liberte Long Stent significantly reduces the risk of MI and cardiac death in long lesions compared to the TAXUS Express Stent, while reporting zero percent stent thrombosis. These data, combined with the previously reported reduction in nine-month late-loss, suggest that these improvements are likely the result of the thinner struts and improved stent geometry of the TAXUS Liberte Stent."

In the TAXUS ATLAS Long Lesion Trial, the TAXUS Liberte Long Stent demonstrated significantly improved safety outcomes when treating long lesions compared to the TAXUS Express Stent. The rate of cardiac death showed a significant 78 percent reduction in patients treated with the TAXUS Liberte Long Stent compared to the TAXUS Express Stent (1.5% vs. 6.7%, p=0.03). Overall MI showed a significant 72 percent reduction at three years in patients receiving a single TAXUS Liberte Long Stent compared to a single TAXUS Express Stent (2.9% vs. 10.4%, p=0.01). This improvement was primarily driven by a significant reduction in non-Q wave MI. The TAXUS Liberte Long Stent had zero stent thrombosis at three years using either the Protocol definition or the ARC definite/probable definition while the control TAXUS Express Stent reported 0.8 percent stent th
