Two-year serial coronary angiographic and intravascular ultrasound analysis of in-stent angiographic late lumen loss and ultrasonic neointimal volume from the TAXUS II trial.

Abstract:

Late loss has been used as a reliable surrogate end point for evaluation and differentiation of short-term performance of drug-eluting stents. This study investigated the consistency between angiographic and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) outcomes of late lumen loss (late loss) and neointimal growth to measure restenotic plaque load in TAXUS and bare metal stents. The randomized TAXUS II trial evaluates the polymer-based paclitaxel-eluting TAXUS stent in slow- and moderate-release formulatio...
