Brief Summary:
The objective of the study is to assess angiographic and clinical performance of Xlimus Drug Eluting Stent (DES) compared to Synergy Bioabsorbable Polymer Everolimus Eluting Stent in patients treated with percutaneous coronary angioplasty

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Device: Xlimus DES Implantation during coronary angioplasty Device: Synergy DES Implantation during coronary angioplasty Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The present clinical investigation is designed as a prospective, multicentre, international, randomized, open label, 2-arm parallel group, trial in patients undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) comparing Xlimus DES versus Synergy DES with respect to optical coherence tomography (OCT) derived measures at 6-month Follow Up (FU) and clinical events at 12 months after procedure. A total of 180 patients will be recruited and randomized in the two groups in a 2:1 ratio. After index procedure, patients will be followed up by angiographic follow-up at 6 months and clinical follow-up at 12 months.The primary endpoint will be independently evaluated by the Core-Lab which will be blinded as to group assignment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. In-stent neointimal volume [ Time Frame: 6-month follow-up ]
    In-stent neointimal volume at 6-month follow-up, measured with OCT, as assessed by the Core-Lab. Neointimal volume will be calculated in all analyzed cross-sections and volumetric measurements and in stent neointimal volume will be compared in the two groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neointimal area [ Time Frame: 6-month follow-up ]
    Neointimal area calculated at the site of minimal lumen area measured with OCT

  2. Number of Target lesion failure [ Time Frame: 12-months follow-up ]
    composite of Cardiac death, target-vessel Myocardial infarction (MI) and clinically indicated target lesion revascularization (TLR)

  3. Number of patients experiencig Cardiac death [ Time Frame: 12-months follow-up ]
    Any death due to proximate cardiac cause (eg, MI, fatal arrhythmia), unwitnessed death and death of unknown cause, and all procedure-related deaths, including those related to concomitant treatment, will be classified as cardiac death

  4. Number of Target-vessel Myocardial infarction [ Time Frame: 12-months follow-up ]
    any MI that, irrespective of the time after the index procedure, is related to documented acute ischemia in the territory of the implanted stent without angiographic confirmation of stent thrombosis and in the absence of any other obvious cause. Type of acute MI is classified according to the Joint ESC/ACCF/AHA/ WHF Joint Task Force for the Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction

  5. Number of Target-lesion revascularization [ Time Frame: 12-months follow-up ]
    repeat revascularization will be defined as any repeat PCI or new coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery within the first year post-PCI

  6. Number of Stent thrombosis [ Time Frame: 12-months follow-up ]
    This is defined according to classification proposed by the Academic Research Consortium

  7. Percentage of Device success at 24 hours [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    deployment of the assigned stents without system failure or device-related complication

  8. Percentage of Lesion success at 24 hours [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    attainment of <50% residual stenosis of the target lesion using post-PCI

  9. Percentage of Procedural success at 24 hours [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
    lesion success without the occurrence of major adverse cardiac event (MACE) during the hospital stay
