OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate the strategy success and short term clinical outcomes of direct stenting via 5 French (F) diagnostic catheters using a novel bare metal stent with integrated delivery system (Svelte Medical Systems, New Providence, New Jersey, USA) and compare the results to a conventionally treated matched group. METHODS: Fifteen consecutive patients with lesions deemed suitable for direct stenting using a bare metal stent were included. The primary endpoint was the strategy success defined as the ability to successfully treat a target lesion via a 5 F diagnostic catheter with a good angiographic result (TIMI III flow, residual stenosis ≤20%). Procedure and fluoroscopy times, contrast agent use, cost, and short-term clinical outcomes were compared to a matched group treated via conventional stenting. RESULTS: The primary endpoint was reached in 14/15 patients (93%). There were no significant differences in procedural (58.6 minutes ± 12.7 vs. 57.4 minutes ± 14.2) or fluoroscopy times (10.0 min ± 4.3 vs.10.1 min ± 3.9) or contrast agent use (193.7 ml ± 54.8 vs. 181.4 ml ± 35.6). However, there were significant reductions in materials used in the study group compared to the control group equating to cost savings of almost US $600 per case (US $212.44 ± 258.09 vs. US $804.69 ± 468.11; p=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Direct stenting using a novel bare metal stent with an integrated delivery system via 5 F diagnostic catheters is a viable alternative to conventional stenting in selected patients and is associated with significant cost savings. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
