Abstract

The intrinsic characteristics of a stent including stent length may affect both procedural success and long-term outcome. The present study evaluated the immediate and follow-up results after implantation of the short and long NIR stent and compared these results with the Palmaz-Schatz stent. Between July 1995 and December 1996, stenting with a 16-mm NIR stent (NIR-16), a 32-mm NIR stent (NIR-32), or a Palmaz-Schatz stent (PS) was performed in 68, 57, and 155 lesions, respectively. There were no significant differences in the incidences of delivery failure (PS, 2.6%: NIR-16, 4.4%; NIR-32, 5.3%; p = NS) and procedural success (PS, 92%; NIR-16, 93%; NIR-32, 93%; p = NS) among the 3 groups. The reference vessel diameter was smaller in lesions with a 32-mm NIR stent than in those with a Palmaz-Schatz stent (PS, 3.14 ± 0.58, NIR-16, 3.00 ± 0.50; NIR-32, 2.90 ± 0.47 mm; p
