Three-year results comparing platinum-chromium PROMUS element and cobalt-chromium XIENCE V everolimus-eluting stents in de novo coronary artery narrowing (from the PLATINUM Trial).

PMID 24530167


In the randomized PLATINUM trial, the PROMUS Element platinum-chromium everolimus-eluting stent (PtCr-EES; Boston Scientific, Natick, Massachusetts) was noninferior to the XIENCE V cobalt-chromium everolimus-eluting stent (CoCr-EES; Boston Scientific and Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) for the primary end point of 1-year target lesion failure. This study reports the 3-year outcomes. Patients (n=1,530) with 1 or 2 de novo native coronary artery lesions (baseline vessel diameter≥2.50 mm to ≤4.25 mm and length≤24 mm) were randomized 1:1 to PtCr-EES versus CoCr-EES. Three-year follow-up was available in 93.9% (703 of 749) of patients with CoCr-EES and 96.7% (733 of 758) of patients with PtCr-EES. Comparing CoCr-EES with PtCr-EES, 3-year rates of death (4.3% vs 3.7%, hazard ratio [HR] 0.88, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.52 to 1.48, p=0.62), cardiac death (1.9% vs 1.2%, HR 0.63, 95% CI 0.27 to 1.45, p=0.27), myocardial infarction (2.5% vs 2.3%, HR 0.92, 95% CI 0.48 to 1.79, p=0.81), ischemia-driven target lesion revascularization (4.9% vs 3.5%, HR 0.72, 95% CI 0.43 to 1.20, p=0.21), and Academic Research Consortium definite or probable stent thrombosis (0.5% vs 0.7%, HR 1.23, 95% CI 0.33 to 4.57, p=0.76) were not significantly different. In conclusion, 3-year results of the PLATINUM randomized, controlled, clinical trial demonstrate comparable safety and efficacy outcomes of the PROMUS Element PtCr-EES and the XIENCE V CoCr-EES.
