Stone, a professor of medicine at Columbia University Medical Center/New York-Presbyterian Hospital, has revealed that in patients undergoing angioplasty, the use of paclitaxel-eluting stents has been found to reduce rates of target lesion revascularization (TLR) and binary angiographic restenosis when compared to the use of bare-metal stents after 1 year.
The in-segment binary angiographic restenosis - which assesses the re-narrowing by more than 50% of the vessel diameter at 6-month follow-up - showed for the Janus group a reduction of 40% with respect to the Tecnic control group.
This data shows an excellent patient safety profile for both stents and a trend towards more efficacy in terms of reduction of TLR and binary angiographic restenosis of the Janus stent versus the Tecnic control group," commented Dr.
