Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate the long term efficacy and safety of firebird sirolimus-eluting stent for treatment of complex coronary Lesions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Coronary Disease Device: Firebird(TM) Sirolimus-Eluting Stent

Detailed Description:
Randomized clinical trials and large-scale registry studies have shown that sirolimus-eluting stents (SESs) decrease major adverse cardiovascular event(MACE)and restenosis rates compared with bare metal stents (BMSs), but relatively small proportion of patients of complex lesions were enrolled in these studies. Moreover,with the increase in complexity of lesions, different DES shows different effects. The long term effects of DES for treatment of complex coronary lesions remains to be established. This study aims to investigate the long term efficacy and safety of Firebird sirolimus-eluting stent implantation in a high-risk population, that is, the patients who had complex coronary lesions, including multivessel diseases,diffuse long lesions, left main lesions, chronic total occlusion, bifurcation lesions, small vessel diseases,severe calcification or angulation lesions, ostial lesions, restenotic lesions after bare metel stent implantation .

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 1000 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prospective, Multicenter Study of Firebird Sirolimus-Eluting Stent for Treatment of Complex Coronary Lesions. Clinical and Angiographic Outcomes of FIREMAN Study

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
the group of patients with angiographic results of complex coronary lesions(refer to the definition of protocol)are enrolled and given a clinical follow up and angiographic follow up during the following one year.
Device: Firebird(TM) Sirolimus-Eluting Stent
balloon expandable stent that made of stainless steel.The length is from 13mm-33mm,and the diameter from 2.5mm-4.0mm
Other Name: sirolimus-eluting stent made in China

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. cumulative MACE (including cardiac death, non-fatal myocardial infarction and target lesion revascularization) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. angiographic binary restenosis [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
  2. late loss [ Time Frame: 8 months ]
  3. cumulative target vessel revascularization [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  4. cumulative in-stent thrombosis [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  5. cumulative stroke [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
the study enrolls a group of high risk population who have angiographic results of complex coronary lesions.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • the patients who have the indication for coronary interventional therapy
  • stable angina pectoris (CCS class I II III IV)or unstable angina pectoris (Braunwald class B&C,I-II) or documented asymptomatic myocardial ischemia
  • reference vessel diameter is of 2.5mm to 4.0mm (estimated by investigator)
  • significant(>70%) stenosis of target lesion (estimated by investigator)
  • angiographic criteria is complex coronary lesions which includes the followings: multivessel lesions(>or=two vessels), diffuse long lesions with length>or=30mm or need two stents overlapped, small vessel lesions(reference vessel diameter<or=2.5mm estimated by investigator), bifurcation lesions need one or two stents and side branch diameter>2.0mm, chronic total occlusion lesions(>3 months), ostial target lesions(including ostial of right coronary artery,left anterior descending artery and left circumflex artery), severe calcification or angulation(location of target lesion at a >45°bend), protected and unprotected left main lesions, restenosis after bare metal stent implantation(core laboratory decision )
  • the patients would like to accept the follow-up and sign the informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • pregnant or nursing women
  • acute myocardial infarction within the preceding one month
  • graft lesions after CABG
  • implanted other drug-eluting stents at the same time except the designated one
  • left ventricle dysfunction with ejection fraction<30%(evaluated by echocardiogram with Simpson's double-chamber method)
  • renal dysfunction with serum creatinine level>or=2mg/dl(177umol/L)
  • pre-intervention with intravascular brachytherapy or other non-PTCA techniques
  • contradictions or allergy to aspirin, heparin, clopidogrel,stainless steel and hypersensitive to contrast media
  • anticipated life span < 12 months
  • enrollment in other clinical trials at the same time not reaching the primary endpoint and probably interference the present trial
