Aims To compare the long-term clinical safety between two drug-eluting stents with different healing characteristics in the Patient Related Outcomes with Endeavor (E-ZES) versus Cypher (C-SES) Stenting Trial (PROTECT). At 3 years, there was no difference in the primary outcome of definite or probable stent thrombosis or in the other main secondary clinical outcomes consisting of the composite of death or myocardial infarction. Pre-specified five year clinical follow-up was analysed.Methods and Results PROTECT was a prospective, open-label randomized controlled superiority trial powered to look at differences in long-term clinical safety, including stent thrombosis. Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) was prescribed for ≥3 months and up to 12 months based on current guidelines. PROTECT enrolled 8791 patients undergoing elective or emergency PCI to E-ZES or C-SES. There was no difference in DAPT usage between the two groups up to 5 years. At 5 year follow-up, the primary outcome occurred in 1.7% of E-ZES vs. 2.8% of C-SES patients (HR 0.60 [95% CI 0.45–0.81], p=0.0007) (Figure 1 and 2). The composite of all-cause death or large myocardial infarction occurred in 8.2% of E-ZES vs 9.6% of C-SES treated patients (HR 0.85 [95% CI 0.73–0.98], p=0.021) and of all-cause death or all myocardial infarction occurred in 10.8% of E-ZES vs 12.7% of C-SES treated patients (HR 0.85 [95% CI 0.75–0.96], p=0.008) (Figure 3).Conclusions Drug-eluting coronary stents with different healing characteristics demonstrated different late safety profiles: after 5 years, compared to C-SES, E-ZES reduced the risk of stent thrombosis and the risk of the composite endpoints of death or myocardial infarction. Appropriately-powered large-scale trials with long term follow-up are critical to determine clinical safety and efficacy of implanted coronary stents.
