Medtronic Nets New Indications For Resolute Integrity Drug-Eluting Stent In Europe

“RESOLUTE All Comers has amassed an invaluable data set to guide stent selection for patients with coronary artery disease, regardless of its complexity,” said Prof. Windecker. “The rigorous design and conduct of the study, which enrolled a majority of complex patients and has lost less than two percent of patients to follow-up, makes the results highly relevant to the contemporary clinical practice of interventional cardiology worldwide.”

Prof. Windecker’s co-PIs for RESOLUTE All Comers are Prof. Patrick Serruys, M.D., Ph.D., of the Thoraxcenter at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and Prof. Sigmund Silber, M.D., of the Heart Catheterization Centre in Munich, Germany.

Pooled Analyses: Bifurcation Lesions and In-Stent Restenosis at Two Years

Two-year results from RESOLUTE All Comers and RESOLUTE International in patients with bifurcation lesions and in-stent restenosis will also be presented at EuroPCR. These two subsets are common in standard clinical practice, together accounting for approximately 20–25 percent of patients who receive stents.

The pooled data set on bifurcation lesions, which remain a therapeutic challenge for the interventional community, will be presented on Thursday by Dr. Ran Kornowski from Rabin Medical Center and Tel Aviv University in Israel.

As the only DES on the market with an indication for treating bifurcated lesions, the Resolute DES performed extremely well in this patient subset. Of the 702 patients with bifurcated lesions, the use of the Resolute DES and its excellent side branch access resulted in a low TLF rate of 12.6 percent at two years (and 10.4 percent at one year).

The pooled data set on in-stent restenosis (ISR) will be presented on Friday by Dr. Gert Richardt from the Segeberger Clinic’s Heart Center in Germany. Patients presenting with ISR have been associated with worse outcomes and a higher rate of repeat procedures than patients who are treated for de novo lesions. At two years, the 281 ISR patients treated with a Resolute DES had a TLF rate of 17.5 percent, which is considered low for patients with this challenging lesion type. The TLF rate at one year was 10.8 percent.

In collaboration with leading clinicians, researchers and scientists, Medtronic offers the broadest range of innovative medical technology for the interventional and surgical treatment of cardiovascular disease and cardiac arrhythmias. The company strives to offer products and services that deliver clinical and economic value to healthcare consumers and providers worldwide.
