YUKON Choice Versus TAXUS Liberté in Diabetes Mellitus

Brief Summary:

Revascularisation procedures such as percutaneous coronary intervention are associated with overall worse outcomes in patients with diabetes mellitus. Implantation of coronary stents is associated with higher restenosis rates compared to non-diabetic individuals.

There is only limited data available on the efficacy and safety of the novel Yukon Choice drug-eluting stent system specifically in patients with diabetes mellitus. The trial will determine the efficacy and safety of the novel Yukon Choice stent system compared to the well established Taxus Liberté stent system. The primary endpoint will be "in-stent late lumen loss" at 9 months as determined by invasive angiography.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. "In-stent late lumen loss" at follow-up-angiography (9 months) [ Time Frame: 9 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Binary restenosis [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  2. Target vessel revascularisation rate [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  3. Target lesion revascularisation rate [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  4. Late loss (in-segment) [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  5. MLD und diameter of stenosis (%) [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  6. Death [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  7. Success rate index procedure (residual diameter stenosis < 30%) [ Time Frame: 0 months ]
  8. Combined MACE (cardiac death, myocardial infarction, emergency bypass, stent thrombosis, target lesion revascularization) [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
