Brief Summary:
1500 eligible patients will be treated with the commercially available CYPHER® sirolimus-eluting Bx Velocity™ stent. Patients will be followed to twelve months post-procedure, watching for patients that require a repeat procedure on the same diseased area of the coronary artery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Coronary Stenosis Device: CYPHER® Bx Velocity™ stent (sirolimus-eluting) Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Geographical miss has been associated with treatment failures after intracoronary radiation therapy. This phenomenon, which is secondary to vascular injury outside the treated segment, was strongly correlated with the development of restenosis at the edges of the treated coronary segment. The European and Canadian SIRIUS trials (E and C-SIRIUS) randomized 350 patients with similar baseline characteristics of the US SIRIUS study. Operators used shorter post-dilatation balloons and direct stented 27% of the patients, achieving a 4.0% TLR rate and a 5.1% in-lesion binary restenosis. These somewhat superior results support the concept that refinement in deployment techniques may further improve clinical outcomes of drug-eluting stents.
