DUrable Polymer-based STent CHallenge of Promus Element Versus ReSolute Integrity in an All Comers Population (DUTCH PEERS)

The introduction of drug-eluting stents (DES) in the treatment of coronary artery disease has led to a significant reduction in morbidity but there are further demands on DES performance. Such demands are an optimized performance in very challenging coronary lesions; third generation DES were developed in an effort to further improve DES performance in such challenging lesions. Two CE-certified third generation DES (Resolute Integrity and Promus Element stents) are currently available; there are no data that indicate an advantage of one of these DES over the other.

Condition Intervention Phase
Acute Coronary Syndrome Angina Pectoris Angina, Unstable Myocardial Infarction Coronary Artery Disease Coronary Stenosis Coronary Restenosis Device: Resolute Integrity (Zotarolimus-eluting stent) Device: Promus Element (Everolimus-eluting stent) Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: DUrable Polymer-based STent CHallenge of Promus Element Versus ReSolute Integrity (DUTCH PEERS): Randomized Multicenter Trial in All Comers Population Treated Within Eastern NeThErlands-2 (TWENTE-2)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Minimum age of 18 years;
  • Coronary artery disease and lesion(s) eligible for treatment with drug eluting stents according to clinical guidelines and/or the operators' judgement;
  • Patient is willing and able to cooperate with study procedures and required follow-up visits; and patient has been informed and agrees on the participation by signing an EC approved written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participation in another randomized drug or device study before reaching primary endpoint;
  • Planned surgery within 6 months of PCI unless dual antiplatelet therapy is maintained throughout the peri-surgical period;
  • Intolerance to a P2Y12 receptor antagonist that results in the patient's inability to adhere to dual-antiplatelet therapy, or intolerance to aspirin, heparin, or components of the two DES examined;
  • Known pregnancy;
  • Life expectancy of less than 1 year.
