For lesions which develop restenosis after a drug-eluting stent, it is not known which the right strategy to use is, implantation of the same type of DES as the initial one or a DES with a different drug.

Device: Sirolimus eluting stent
Device: Paclitaxel-eluting stent
Phase 4

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Late luminal loss at follow-up angiography [ Time Frame: 6-8 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Need of target lesion revascularization. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Combined incidence of death or myocardial infarction. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Incidence of stent thrombosis. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Incidence of binary restenosis at follow-up angiography [ Time Frame: 6-8 months ]

Enrollment: 450
Study Start Date: October 2007
Study Completion Date: August 2009
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Same drug
sirolimus-eluting stent will be implanted for restenosis after previous the implantation of a sirolimus-eluting stent
Device: Sirolimus eluting stent
Sirolimus-eluting stent will be implanted
Other Name: Cypher
Active Comparator: Different drug
paclitaxel eluting stent will be implanted for restenosis after previous the implantation of a sirolimus-eluting stent
Device: Paclitaxel-eluting stent
Paclitaxel-eluting stent will be implanted
Other Name: Taxus

Detailed Description:
Treatment of in-stent restenosis after implantation of a DES has poorly been studied. Although there are no data, it may be assumed that certain lesions might be resistant to a given drug and in need of a different DES. Thus, for lesions which develop restenosis after a DES, it is not known which the right strategy to use is, implantation of the same type of DES as the initial one or a DES with a different drug. This prospective, randomized trial will compare the anti-restenotic efficacy of PES or SES in patients with restenosis after initial implantation of a SES

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients older than age 18 with ischemic symptoms or evidence of myocardial ischemia in the presence of > 50% re- stenosis after prior implantation of Sirolimus eluting stents in native coronary vessels
  • Written, informed consent by the patient or her/his legally-authorized representative for participation in the study
  • In women with childbearing potential a negative pregnancy test is mandatory

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Cardiogenic shock
  • Acute myocardial infarction within the first 48 hours from symptom onset.
  • Target lesion located in the left main trunk or bypass graft.
  • Malignancies or other comorbid conditions (for example severe liver, renal and pancreatic disease) with life expectancy less than 12 months or that may result in protocol non-compliance.
  • Allergy to antiplatelet therapy, sirolimus, paclitaxel, stainless steel.
  • Pregnancy (present, suspected or planned) or positive pregnancy test.
  • Previous enrollment in this trial.
  • Patient's inability to fully comply with the study protocol.
