Aims: The pivotal ATLANTA first-in-man study showed the promising safety and efficacy profile of the novel Catania™ stent in a population with ~20% American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) type C coronary lesions. The ATLANTA 2 registry was designed to evaluate the 12-month safety and efficacy of the Catania stent in a broader real world scenario. Methods and results: The ATLANTA 2 registry was a prospective, non-randomised, single-arm study of patients with symptomatic ischaemic heart disease and de novo lesions of native coronary arteries. A total of 300 patients (396 lesions) were recruited and 482 Catania stents were implanted. At 12 months, major adverse cardiac events were 8.8%, mainly driven by target lesion revascularisation (6.5%). Cardiac death and non-fatal myocardial infarction occurred in 2.5% and 0.7% of patients, respectively. Subacute definite or probable stent thrombosis was 0.7%. No late stent thrombosis was recorded. Compared with patients treated with drug-eluting stents or bare metal stents in the study period, those treated with Catania stents experienced similar outcomes at one year. Conclusions: The 12-month results of the ATLANTA 2 registry confirmed the positive results of the ATLANTA first-in-man trial in a more complex population. A randomised trial is needed to assess the comparative value of the Catania stent over currently-used drug-eluting stents or bare metal stents.
