Detailed Description:

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to compare the Titanium-Nitride-Oxide Coated Stent (Helistent Titan2, Hexacath) with a Zotarolimus-Eluting Stent (EndeavorTm, Medtronic) in a non-inferiority trial.

Design: Prospective, multi-center, randomized, non-inferiority trial to be conducted at 3 Swiss interventional cardiology centers. Patients will be randomized in a single-blind fashion (1:1 randomization) to either the Titanium-Nitride-Oxide Coated Stent (Helistent Titan2, Hexacath) or the Zotarolimus-Eluting Stent (EndeavorTm, Medtronic).

Study Population: Patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease including patients with chronic stable angina, silent ischemia, unstable angina, and non-ST elevation myocardial infarction, who qualify for percutaneous coronary interventions

Antiplatelet Therapy: Aspirin 100 mg qd indefinitely; Clopidogrel 75 mg qd for 3 months

Enrollment: A total of 300 patients will be enrolled

All patients will undergo repeat angiography at 6-8 months.

All patients will be followed for up to 5 years.

  3. Inability to provide informed consent
  4. Currently participating in another trial before reaching first endpoint
  5. ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)
