Sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) has been world-widely used in clinical practice in treating patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). The efficacy and safety of Cypher SES (Cordis, MA) has been proved by several randomized clinical trials. Here the investigators design a prospective, multicenter, randomized clinical study in purpose of identifying the non-inferiority in the efficacy and safety in treating CAD patients by Firebird 2 SES (Microport, Shanghai), comparing with Cypher SES.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Stenosis Device: Firebird 2 SES Device: Cypher SES Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Post-marketing Study Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of Firebird 2 Versus Cypher Sirolimus-eluting Stents in Treating Patients With Coronary Artery Disease in China

Further study details as provided by Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • in-stent late lumen loss at 9 months' angiographic follow-up [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
    Late luminal loss was defined as the difference between the minimal luminal diameter immediately after the placement of the stent and the minimal luminal diameter at 9 months

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • target vessel failure [ Time Frame: 1, and 2 years after index procedure ]
    defined as the occurrence of any of the following within 1 and 2 years after the index procedure: death from cardiac causes, Q-wave or non-Q-wave myocardial infarction, or revascularizationof the target vessel (emergency or elective coronaryartery bypass grafting [CABG] or repeated percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty [PTCA]).

Estimated Enrollment: 430
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Firebird 2 stent group
patients who were implated with Firebird 2 SES
Device: Firebird 2 SES
The FIREBIRD2™ Rapamycin-Eluting CoCr Coronary Stent is the second generation DES of MicroPort, which based on the new cobalt chromium alloy stent platform. It uses polyolefin polymer, which makes the coating property very remarkable.
Active Comparator: Cypher Stent Group
patients who were implanted with Cypher SES
Device: Cypher SES
The Cypher SES is based on the 316L platform with Controlled-release, nonresorbable, elastomeric polymer coating.
