dc.description.abstractIntroduction: This was a single centre registry study on clinical efficacy and safety of drug-eluting stent (DES) in diabetic patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for complex coronary lesions. Materials and Methods: A total of 288 diabetic patients who underwent elective PCI between September 2003 and June 2006 in our centre were enrolled and followed-up for 18 months. Among them, 79 (27.4%) patients received sirolimus-eluting stent (SES), 138 (47.9%) paclitaxel-eluting stent (PES) and 71 (24.7%) zotarolimus-eluting stent (ZES). The endpoints were major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and stent thrombosis rates. Results: Baseline demographics were comparable among the 3 DES groups (median age was 60 years; 69% men). Complex lesions (defined as ACC/AHA type C stenosis) accounted for 55.6% of the total lesions: SES (50.6%), PES (65.2%) and ZES (43.7%), P = 0.005. At 18 months follow-up, the composite endpoint of MACE was found in 12.7% in SES group, 8.7% in the PES group, 12.7% in ZES group and (P = 0.55). Stent thrombosis (ST) occurred in 1 patient (1.3%) in the SES group, 2 patients (1.4%) in PES group and 1 patient (1.4%) in ZES group, respectively (P = 1.00). Conclusion: The use of DES for elective PCI in diabetic patients was associated with favourable intermediate-term clinical outcomes with no significant differences in efficacy among the 3 groups. Stent thrombosis had low event occurrence rate.
