Detailed Description:
Coronary artery reblockage remains still a drawback of percutaneous coronary interventions even in the era of drug-eluting stents (DES). DESs working principle consists of the delivery of controlled amounts of antiproliferative agents at the local level, which results in the suppression of neontimal proliferation, the main cause of lumen re-narrowing after stent implantation. At present, several DES platforms have been developed and evaluated for clinical use. They differ between them with regard to the stent type, anti-proliferative drug, presence or absence of polymers employed for drug storage and modification of drug-release kinetics as well as type of polymer used for this purpose. Although their mid-term efficacy has been well-established, there is an ongoing debate on the potential of an increased incidence of late stent thrombosis, particularly after discontinuation of thienopyridine therapy, as well as of delayed onset of restenosis or catch-up phenomenon with DESs. Based on animal and human pathological data, investigators have linked the above-mentioned concerns to the presence of permanent polymers in DESs, which have a proinflammatory and prothrombogenic potential, and sometimes may induce a hypersensitivity reaction. On the other hand, lack of or delayed reendothelialization is considered an important factor for development of coronary reblockage. Estradiol has been shown to promote rapid reendothelialization of the stent and to reduce the restenosis after PCI. This trial will compare the anti-restenotic efficacy of the polymer-free rapamycin plus 17β estradiolvalerat -eluting stent with that of the polymer-free rapamycin-eluting stent in patients with coronary artery disease. The ISAR stent is a rough surface stainless steel stent which allows coating without the need of polymer (PF ISAR stent) in the cath lab.
