Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Target Lesion Failure (TLF) [ Time Frame: 12-months post-procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The primary endpoint for this study is the percentage of participants who experienced Target Lesion Failure (TLF) during the 12 months post-procedure. A TLF event is defined as clinically-driven target lesion revascularization, target vessel myocardial infarction, or cardiac death that could not be clearly attributed to a vessel other than the target vessel at 12 months post-procedure.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Lesion Success [ Time Frame: At procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Lesion success is defined as the attainment of < 50 percent residual stenosis (by Quantitative Coronary Angiography (QCA)) using any percutaneous method.

  • Percentage of Device Success - Protocol Definition [ Time Frame: At procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Device success is defined as achievement of a final residual diameter stenosis of <50 percent (by QCA), using the assigned device only. If QCA was not available, the visual estimate of diameter stenosis was used. Device success was based on the following two measurements. Protocol definition: Only protocol-defined study stents were included.

  • Percentage of Device Success - All CYPHER® Stents Included [ Time Frame: At procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Device success is defined as achievement of a final residual diameter stenosis of <50 percent (by QCA), using the assigned device only. If QCA was not available, the visual estimate of diameter stenosis was used. Device success was based on the following two measurements. All CYPHER® Stents were included if the final residual stenosis was <50%. Non-study CYPHER® Stents were also included.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Achieved Procedure Success [ Time Frame: At procedure during hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Procedure success is defined as achievement of a final diameter stenosis of < 50 percent (by QCA) using any percutaneous method, without the occurrence of death, Myocardial Infarction (MI), or repeat revascularization of the target lesion during the hospital stay.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Target Lesion Revascularization (TLR) [ Time Frame: 12 months post-procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    TLR is defined as any "clinically-driven" repeat percutaneous intervention of the target lesion or bypass surgery of the target vessel. Clinically-driven revascularizations are those in which the patient has a positive functional study, ischemic electrocardiogram (ECG) changes at rest in a distribution consistent with the target vessel, or ischemic symptoms, and an in-lesion diameter stenosis 50 percent by QCA.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Target Vessel Revascularization (TVR) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    TVR is defined as any "clinically driven" repeat percutaneous intervention of the target vessel or bypass surgery of the target vessel. Clinically-driven revascularizations are those in which the patient has a positive functional study, ischemic ECG changes at rest in a distribution consistent with the target vessel, or ischemic symptoms, and an in-lesion diameter stenosis 50 percent by QCA.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Target Vessel Failure (TVF) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Target Vessel failure is defined as clinically-driven target lesion revascularization, target vessel myocardial infarction, or cardiac death that could not be clearly attributed to a vessel other than the target vessel at 12 months post-procedure.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    MAJOR ADVERSE CARDIAC EVENTS (MACE) consists of death, myocardial infarction, emergent bypass surgery, and target lesion revascularization.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Had Lesions of More Than 1 Vessel and Experienced Target Lesion Failure (TLF) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A Target Lesion Failure is defined as clinically-driven target lesion revascularization, target vessel myocardial infarction, or cardiac death that could not be clearly attributed to a vessel other than the target vessel at 12 months post-procedure.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Had Diabetes and Experienced Target Lesion Failure (TLF) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A Target Lesion Failure is defined as clinically-driven target lesion revascularization, target vessel myocardial infarction, or cardiac death that could not be clearly attributed to a vessel other than the target vessel at 12 months post-procedure.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Bleeding Complications [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Bleeding complications include any bleeding events defined by THROMBOLYSIS IN MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION (TIMI), Global Strategies for Opening Occluded Coronary Arteries (GUSTO), and "Protocol" definitions.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Died [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Death incidences include both Cardiac and non-cardiac death.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Any Myocardial Infarction (MI) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Myocardial Infarction includes both Q-wave and WHO Non-Q Wave Myocardial Infarction events.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Stroke [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The stroke definition includes both hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic strokes.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Stent Thrombosis (Protocol Definition) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Protocol defined Stent thrombosis include both Early and Late Thrombosis. Early thrombosis is defined as composite thirty-day ischemic endpoint including death, Q-wave MI, or subabrupt closure requiring revascularization. Late thrombosis is defined as myocardial infarction occurring > 30 days after the index procedure and attributable to the target vessel with angiographic documentation (site-reported or by qualitative coronary angiography) of thrombus or total occlusion at the target site and freedom from an interim revascularization of the target vessel.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Stent Thrombosis (Academic Research Consortium (ARC) Definition) [ Time Frame: 12 months post procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Academic Research Consortium (ARC) defines STENT THROMBOSIS as consisting of the following:

    1. DEFINITE - Angiographic or pathologic confirmation;
    2. PROBABLE - Any unexplained death within the first 30 days or Any MI (related to documented acute ischemia and without another obvious cause) in the territory of the stent;
    3. POSSIBLE - Any unexplained death > 30 days.

    ARC Stent thrombosis should be reported as a cumulative value at the different time points and with the different separate time points.


  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Early Stent Thrombosis (Academic Research Consortium (ARC) Definition) [ Time Frame: 0-30 days post-procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Those ARC stent thromboses occurred between 0 and 30 days post-procedure are early stent thrombosis.

  • Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Late Stent Thrombosis (Academic Research Consortium (ARC) Definition) [ Time Frame: 31-360 days post-procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Those ARC stent thromboses occurred between 31 to 360 days post-procedure are late stent thrombosis.
