BACKGROUND: Chinese sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) have been widely used in recent years. However, the comparison of clinical outcomes between Chinese and foreign SES remains unknown.
OBJECTIVES: To compare the outcomes of Chinese SES (Firebird) with foreign SES (Cypher Select) in the treatment of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
METHODS: 4000 consecutive patients treated with SESs from January 2008 to December 2009 were included in this study. Based on the differences of the stents, the patients were divided into a Chinese SES group (Firebird; n = 2008) and a foreign SES group (Cypher Select; n = 1992). Outcomes were monitored for 1 year. The primary clinical endpoint was major adverse cardiac events (MACE): a composite of death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) and target-vessel revascularisation (TVR).
RESULTS: No differences were observed in the incidence of MACE (17.8% vs. 18.6%, p = 0.514) and TVR rate (9.0% vs. 8.6%, p = 0.632) during 1-year follow-up.
CONCLUSIONS: Chinese SES and foreign SES have similar effects on 1-year clinical outcomes and safety.
