    Three contemporary thin‐strut drug‐eluting stents implanted in severely calcified coronary lesions of participants in a randomized all‐comers trial

    Objective The objective was to assess the 2‐year clinical performance of three drug‐eluting stents in all‐comer patients with severely calcified coronary lesions. Background Severe lesion calcification increases cardiovascular event risk after coronary stenting, but there is a lack of data on the clinical outcome of all‐comers with severely calcified lesions who were treated with more recently introduced drug‐eluting stents. Methods The BIO‐RESORT trial ( clinicaltrials.gov : NCT01674803 ) randomly assigned 3,514 all‐comer patients to biodegradable polymer Synergy everolimus‐eluting stents (EES) or Orsiro sirolimus‐eluting stents (SES), versus durable polymer Resolute Integrity zotarolimus‐eluting ...
