Brief Summary:

Although drug-eluting stents have reduced rates of restenosis and late lumen loss compared with bare metal stents, late stent thrombosis (LST), a life-threatening complication of this technology, has emerged as a major concern. Researches indicated incomplete neointimal coverage of stent struts as the most important morphometric predictor of LST. Pathological research showed stenting disruption of adjacent vulnerable plaques can precipitate LST, Meanwhile, thin-cap fibroatheromas (TCFA) as the most important predictor of Major Adverse Cardiovascular. Therefore, there is a hypothesis that TCFA may impair intimal healing which are prone to LST in vivo.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT)is a high-resolution (<10 µm), catheter-based imaging modality capable of investigating detailed coronary plaque morphology in vivo.This study aimed to observe that TCFA will arise what of the effect on intimal healing of stent struts on the lesions which fractional flow reserve (FFR)≤0.75 after EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent was implanted at 9 months follow up: evaluated by OCT and FFR

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Unrecognized Condition Device: EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent

Detailed Description:

The primary end point is to Neointimal coverage after 9 months of the stent implantation.

Quality assurance plan that addresses data validation and registry procedures, including any plans for site monitoring and auditing.

Data checks to compare data entered into the registry against predefined rules for range or consistency with other data fields in the registry.

Source data verification to assess the accuracy, completeness, or representativeness of registry data by comparing the data to external data sources (e.g., medical records, paper or electronic case report forms, or interactive voice response systems).

Data dictionary that contains detailed descriptions of each variable used by the registry, including the source of the variable, coding information if used and normal ranges if relevant.

Standard Operating Procedures to address registry operations and analysis activities, such as patient recruitment, data collection, data management, data analysis, reporting for adverse events, and change management.

Sample size assessment to specify the number of participants or participant years necessary to demonstrate an effect.

Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Effect of TCFA on Neointimal Coverage After EXCEL Biodegradable Polymer-coated Sirolimus-eluting Stents Implantation at 9 Months Follow-up: Evaluated by Optical Coherence Tomography and Fractional Flow Reserve
Study Start Date : December 2014
Actual Primary Completion Date : November 2016
Actual Study Completion Date : November 2016

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent was implanted on lesions which include TCFA (>=1)
Device: EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent
EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent was implanted on lesions which is not include TCFA
Device: EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neointimal coverage of EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
    offline OCT analysis will be performed independently by 2 investigators blinded to patient characteristics and to the stent used. Proprietary software will be used to analyze cross-sections at 1-mm intervals(every 5 frames) within the stented segment. In each cross-section, the number of struts was counted. Struts were classified as uncovered if any part of the strut was visibly exposed to the lumen, or covered if a layer of tissue was visible all over the reflecting surfaces.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Major Adverse Cardiovascular of EXCEL biodegradable polymer-coated sirolimus-eluting stent [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
