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 Excel SES (JW Medical, Shandong, China, MA) with biodegradable polymer has been proved by several 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) with durable polymer, comparing with Excel SES.

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 ]
    patients are planned to receive angiographic follow-up at 9 months after index procedure, and in-stent late lumen loss will be analyzed

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • target vessel failure [ Time Frame: 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: 570
