Abstract

BACKGROUND: Although safety and efficacy of the NIR(TM) stent have been reported, the long-term angiographic and clinical outcomes have yet to be investigated. The FINESS-II Study (First International NIR Endovascular Stent Study) was designed to assess the procedural safety of single 9 and 16 mm NIR stent implantation, the six-month restenosis rate and finally the six- and 12-month clinical outcome of patients treated with this novel coronary stent. METHODS: Patients with angina and a single de novo lesion in a native coronary artery of >3 and
