The COMPETE study is a prospective,randomized,two-arm multi-center clinical trial comparing two commercially available coronary stents: Chrono Carbostent Carbofilm™ Coated vs Driver/Micro-Driver Coronary Stent System. In this study, 204 subjects will be included (2:1 randomization Chrono:Driver/Micro Driver) in 6 Italian sites.
