Introduction: Despite the undeniable clinical efficacy of drug-eluting stents with durable polymers, concerns regarding their long-term safety have been raised, especially in more complex subsets. The Manipal-S Registry was designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the biodegradable polymer coated SupralimusÂ® Sirolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent for the treatment of coronary artery disease, across a wide range of patients who are treated in real-life clinical practice.
Methods: All the consecutive 116 patients who underwent single-vessel or multiple vessel percutaneous coronary interventions with the use of SupralimusÂ® sirolimus-eluting stents between September 2009 and December 2010, were included in this study. Patients were clinically followed-up at 1, 9, 12 and 24 months post-procedure. All clinical, procedural, and follow-up information were collected and analysed.
Results: In total 116 patients, 126 lesions were implanted with 144 stents which had an average stent length of 25.8Â±8.0 mm. The incidences of any major adverse cardiac and cerebral events at 1, 9, 12 and 24 months were 0, 5 (4.3%), 8 (6.9%), and 10 (8.6%) respectively.
Conclusion: These 24-month results clearly provide evidence for safety and effectiveness of the SupralimusÂ® Sirolimus-eluting coronary stent system with the biodegradable polymer in real-life patients, even in those with acute myocardial infarctions.
