Abstract: To assess acute and late major adverse cardiac events (MACE) using the S7 coronary stent. Settings and Methods: A prospective, non-randomized trial where 406 patients with objective evidence of ischemia and a target vessel diameter ::=:3.0 mm and ::;4.0 mm underwent percutaneous intervention (PCI) using an S7 stent. Patients were assessed for acute complications and followed for MACE for up to 6 months. Result: A total of 406 patients were involved and 437 lesions were dilated. The mean age was 57 years. They were 80.8% male and 23.9% diabetic. 29.5% had prior myocardial infarction. 54.8% had type B2 +C lesions. There were no acute complications, including either acute or subacute thrombosis. All patients were dilated successfully with an increase in minimal luminal diameter from 0.7 mm ± 0.7 mm to 3.3 ± 0.6 mm (P=0.0005). Follow up at 6 months was available for 96.6% of patients. The rate of major adverse cardiac events was 8.5% and the rate of target lesion revascularization was 6.3%. Conclusion: Despite the complexity of the lesions being dilated, PCI using S7 stent has good acute angiographic results. The acute and 6-month events rate were low with optimal follow-up.
