Brief Summary:
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.

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
