Moreover, the preliminary results of the PREMIER registry displayed a 3-fold higher mortality rate in the group treated with DES (SES) compared to the group treated with BMS.

It basically demonstrates that even if the angiographic end points of late loss and binary restenosis were substantially higher for zotarolimus-eluting stents than those usually seen in sirolimus-eluting and paclitaxel-eluting stents, there was apparently no clinical disadvantage: the target vessel failure—defined as a composite of target vessel revascularization, recurrent Q-wave or non–Q-wave MI, or cardiac death—was comparable to similar end points found in sirolimus-eluting and paclitaxel-eluting stent trials.
