Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Using FIREHAWK DES treating CAD
Device: FIREHAWK biodegradable polymer rapamycin-eluting stent

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective open-labeled, multi-center, single-arm observational registry study. Approximately 1,100 subjects will be enrolled to evaluate the TLF as the primary endpoint at 12-month. Also, the study will follow up those subjects up to 5 years as the secondary endpoints.
