We sought to explore the immediate clinical and angiographic results of the Titan(®) stent implantation in diabetic patients, as well as the major adverse cardiac events (MACE) at 6-month follow-up. We enrolled 156 consecutive diabetic patients admitted to undergo percutaneous intervention for at least one significant (50%) coronary lesion. All lesions were treated with the Titan(®) stent implantation according to the contemporary interventional techniques. Patients were prospectively followed-up for at least 6 months. The primary endpoint was MACE at 6-month follow-up [cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI), or target lesion revascularization (TLR)]. Secondary endpoints included angiographic and clinical procedural success, in-hospital MACE, TLR at 6-month follow-up, and stent thrombosis. The mean age was 66.7 ± 9.6 years, (68.4% males). A total of 197 Titan(®) stents were implanted in 163 lesions. Direct stenting was performed in 45.2% of the cases. The mean stent diameter was 3.1 ± 0.61 mm, and the mean length was 18.0 ± 8.9 mm. Average stent deployment pressure was 13.9 ± 4.2 bars. Angiographic procedural success was achieved in 154 (98.7%) cases, and clinical procedural success was achieved in 153 (98.1%) cases. One patient developed in-hospital non-Q-wave MI following the procedure. Clinical follow-up was completed in 155 (99.4%) patients. Three patients (1.9%) died of a cardiac or unknown cause, and two (1.3%) developed MI. TLR was performed in 11 patients (7.1%). Cumulative MACE at 6-month follow-up occurred in 16 (10.3%) patients. No patient suffered stent thrombosis. Titan(®) stent implantation in diabetic patients achieves an excellent immediate clinical and angiographic outcome, with a low incidence of MACE at mid-term follow-up.

    ABSTRACT: Coronary stents have evolved over time, from bare-metal stents to drug-eluting stents, and now to bioactive stents. We sought to explore the immediate outcome of the titanium-nitride-oxide-coated bioactive stent, Titan2(®), in real-world practice, and the incidence of major cardiac events at follow-up. Consecutive patients admitted for percutaneous intervention for at least one significant (≥50%) lesion in a native coronary artery were treated with Titan2(®) stent implantation. The primary endpoint was total major adverse cardiac events at 12-month follow-up. Secondary endpoints included target lesion revascularization at 12-month follow-up and the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy. Among 356 patients (mean age 67.4 ± 12.1 years), 77.2% were male and 39.3% were treated for myocardial infarction (MI). A total of 546 Titan2(®) stents were implanted in 420 lesions. Angiographic and clinical procedural success was achieved in all cases. No cases of in-hospital major adverse cardiac events or acute stent thrombosis were reported. Of 335 patients (94.1%) with 12-month clinical follow-up, four (1.2%) died, MI occurred in five (1.5%), target lesion revascularization was performed in 17 (5.1%) and major adverse cardiac events occurred in 24 (7.2%). One patient (0.3%) suffered late stent thrombosis during follow-up, but no cases of acute or subacute stent thrombosis occurred. Dual antiplatelet therapy continued beyond 6 months in 64.5% of patients. In real-world practice, Titan2(®) stent implantation achieves an excellent immediate outcome, with a low incidence of major adverse cardiac events at 12-month follow-up.

    ABSTRACT: 5-Hydroxytryptamine type 2 antagonists are used to treat symptomatic peripheral arterial disease. However, it remains unknown as to whether the administration of sarpogrelate, a 5-hydroxytryptamine type 2 antagonist, improves the prognosis after endovascular therapy for critical limb ischemia (CLI). We performed a retrospective analysis using a database of 386 Japanese patients undergoing endovascular therapy for CLI. Sixty-seven patients were treated with sarpogrelate, and we compared their prognosis with that of an equal number of background-matched controls extracted from the population. The primary end point was the first event of either major amputation or death from any cause, and amputation-free survival was evaluated. The follow-up period was 21 ± 18 months (mean ± standard deviation), and 58 end points were observed. Patients treated with sarpogrelate had a significantly higher amputation-free survival rate than their matched controls (P = 0.036). The hazard ratio for the end point and its 95 % confidence interval was 0.57 (0.34-0.97). These results suggest that sarpogrelate treatment is associated with a favorable prognostic outcome in CLI patients undergoing endovascular therapy. Future prospective studies are required to investigate whether sarpogrelate treatment would improve the prognosis of CLI patients.
