Early results with polymer-based paclitaxel-eluting stents have shown significant improvements in the clinical and angiographic parameters of restenosis, as well as excellent safety outcomes. However, the duration of these beneficial effects is unknown. Therefore, the clinical outcomes of the TAXUS I study population were evaluated at 2- and 3-year follow-up. In TAXUS I, 61 patients with single, focal coronary lesions were randomly assigned to receive either a paclitaxel-eluting TAXUS stent (n = 31) or a bare metal control stent (n = 30). Low rates of composite major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) reported at 1-year follow-up (3.2% TAXUS vs 10.0% control) were maintained at 2 and 3 years, with no additional MACEs in either treatment group 1 year after implantation. The single target vessel revascularization in the TAXUS group was remote from the target lesion in contrast to 3 target lesion revascularizations in the control group.
