To assess the safety and efficacy of the novel Nile PAX polymer-free drug-eluting coronary stent system for the treatment of single de novo bifurcation lesions in native coronary arteries


In patients following the protocol criteria (n=95):

  • Angiographic FU at 9 months demonstrated binary restenosis rates in the PV and SB of 13.9% and 12.8%, respectively (primary endpoint), with overall in-bifurcation lesion restenosis of 18.6%
  • At 9 months clinical FU, cumulative ischemia-driven TLR rate was 8.4%, and overall TLR rate was 12.6%
  • Overall, there were no safety concerns, including absence of cardiac death and stent thrombosis throughout the study, and only 1 case of non-Q wave MI related to a new revascularization procedure
