The purpose of this study was to determine whether Sirolimus stent implantation is effective in reducing neointimal hyperplasia as compared to Bare metal stent in diabetic patients with de novo coronary artery stenosis.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Device: Drug eluting stent Device: Bare metal stent Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Comparison of Sirolimus-Eluting Stent Versus Standard Stent for Percutaneous Coronary Revascularization in Diabetic Patients

Further study details as provided by Hospital San Carlos, Madrid:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint of this study was in-segment late lumen loss as assessed by quantitative coronary angiography [ Time Frame: 270-day follow-up ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Other angiographic parameters of restenosis such as binary restenosis, and minimal luminal diameter; major adverse cardiac events including cardiac death, myocardial infarction, target lesion (in-segment zone) revascularization stent thrombosis [ Time Frame: 1, 9, 12 and 24-month follow-up ]

Enrollment: 160
Study Start Date: February 2003
Study Completion Date: December 2005
Primary Completion Date: September 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 2 Device: Drug eluting stent
Drug eluting stent implantation
Placebo Comparator: 1
Bare metal stent
Device: Bare metal stent


Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diabetic either non-insulin or insulin-dependent (according to World Health Organization Report) on pharmacologic treatment (insulin or hypoglycaemic agents) for at least 1 month, and presented de novo coronary stenoses in 1,2 or 3 native vessels with symptoms or objective evidence of ischemia. Stenoses had to be amenable for stent implantation, with vessel size smaller than 4.0 mm (as assessed visually on angiography)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Impaired glucose tolerance without pharmacologic treatment, gestational diabetes or transient hyperglycaemia
  • Stenoses located in saphenous bypass, arterial bypass grafting, unprotected left main or involving important side branches (> 2 mm) that should be treated during the procedure
  • Left ventricle ejection fraction < 25%
  • Prior treatment with intracoronary brachytherapy or other drug eluting stent at target site
  • Restenotic lesions; known allergies to aspirin, ticlopidine and clopidogrel acute coronary syndromes with persistent ST elevation < 72 hours and/or CPK twice the upper normal limit
  • Non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes with CPK twice the upper normal limit
  • Severe hepatic or renal disease (creatinin clearance < 30 ml/min or hepatic enzymes twice the upper normal limit); and life expectancy < 1 year
