This study is being done to study stent deformation on persons with de novo coronary lesions to determine how much deformation takes place and how often. The information gathered from the group that receives the Promus element stent will be compared to other groups that receive other contemporary drug eluting stents.

Coronary Stenosis

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: The Promus Element Rewards Study

Further study details as provided by Medstar Health Research Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Stent length [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The primary endpoint of this study will be to assess the overall change in stent length post deployment by intravascualar ultrasound (IVUS) between the 5 stent groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • IVUS stent length [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The secondary endpoints of this analysis will be to detect the occurrence of a 10% change in stent length by IVUS as compared to the labeled stent length.

Estimated Enrollment: 500
Study Start Date: October 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
100 patients who have received a Cypher stent during their coronary intervention
Taxus Express
100 patients who have received a Taxus Express stent during their coronary intervention
100 patients who have received an Endeavor stent during their coronary intervention
Promus/Xience V
100 patients who have received a Promus/Xience V stent during their coronary intervention
Promus Element
100 patients who have received a Taxus Element stent during their coronary intervention


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
