Brief Summary:
Aim of the study is to compare the everolimus eluting stent and sirolimus eluting stent in all comers PCI eligible patients

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Coronary Atherosclerosis Device: coronary stent Device: stent Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Compared with the currently available first-generation drug-eluting stents (DES), second-generation DES have been designed with the goal of improving safety and efficacy. Everolimus, a sirolimus analogue, is released from a open cell, thin-strut, cobalt-chromium frame. A significant reduction in cardiac events was noted in patients with the everolimus-eluting stent compared with those who had a paclitaxel-eluting stent. Sirolimus eluting stent was the first available drug eluting stent and is the most tested. Therefore the investigators compared the safety and efficacy of the everolimus-eluting and sirolimus eluting stents in unselected patients in real world practice.
