Diabetes mellitus is associated with an increased risk of restenosis, stent thrombosis, and death after
percutaneous coronary interventions. Little is known about the late outcome of patients with diabetes mellitus who
receive drug-eluting stents (DES) or bare metal stents (BMS).
Methods: From January 2008 to January 2010, six patients with DES and 20 with BMS, ISR were identified at our
Results: The median age of our diabetic cohort was 63 years, and 87 of the patients were male. For two years, rates
of repeat target-vessel revascularization were significantly lower among diabetic patients treated with DES
Conclusions: DES is effective among diabetic patients in substantially reducing the need for repeat TVR.

Although ISR was once a feared consequence of PCI Indeed, the safety concerns of DES are perhaps even greater among diabetic patients with a recent study demonstrated DES to be highly effective in reducing showing a three-fold increase in the hazard of death restenosis and thereby minimizing the need for future coronary revascularization (5-9). Several trials are limitations of the study led the authors to urge underway to evaluate whether PCI with DES would cautious interpretation of their findings (14).

Recently, the enthusiasm for DES coronary revascularization for diabetic patients with coronary artery disease. Accordingly, the main was implanted if the patient needed >1 stent. Aspirin objective of our study was to evaluate the long-term safety and effectiveness of diabetic patients who according to standard practice. After the intervention, received DES and BMS using a population-based the patients received aspirin 200 mg indefinitely and clopidogrel 150 mg for the first three days and 75 mgfor ≥ six months. BMS patients received aspirin 200 2. MATERIAL AND METHODS

Measurements were implantation (sirolimus or paclitaxel) in native performed on cineangiogram recorded after the coronary arteries at our center. All patients were intracoronary administration of nitroglycerin. Binary asked to return for follow-up angiography at six angiographic restenosis was defined as a diameter months after the procedure.

Study Sample: We initially identified a cohort who Adverse cardiac events were monitored throughout the follow-up period by a telephone interview at 30 Cardiological Clinic “GULI” from January 1, 2008, days, a clinical visit at six to eight months, and to January 31, 2010.

in the same vessel, repeat PCI without stent, or Baseline Patient Characteristics: The median subsequent coronary artery bypass graft surgery or age was 63 ± 10 years, 77% were male. Procedural Characteristics: DES were used in 25.66% of cases, BMS were used in 74.33% of cases, and the mean stent length per case was 18.99 mm and a mean stent characteristics between the DES and BMS groups diameter of 3.05 mm. Clinical Characteristics: The stratified by diabetes status using student tests for mean time from PCI to follow up was six, 12, and 18 continuous variables, and Microsoft Excel 2007 was months. 76.99% were asymptomatic and 23.01% utilized for the graphic representations and graphs.

A P value < .05 was considered to indicate underwent coronary angiography because ischemia Intervention and Adjunct Drug Therapy: All was detected on stress testing. Out of the 23.01% patients received a loading dose of 300 mg of patients who presented with angina pectoris, 31 clopidogrel at least two hours before undergoing coronary angiography (16). The same type of DES used myocardial infarction after PCI and exercise stress test as a measurement of safety. This liberal quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) within a definition for safety assessment would tend to previously (at least four months) stented vessel introduce a large number of events and tend to segment. ISR was classified as focal (<10 mm long), diminish the ability to find significant differences diffuse (>10 mm long), proliferative (>10 mm long and extending outside the stent edges), or totallyoccluded.

safety between DES and BMS and others showing higher risk of adverse outcomes associated with DES immense favors on me. I would like to thank all my (17-20). Most of these studies, however, have limited patients for their patience and co-operation without power to detect a difference in outcomes because which this thesis work entitled COMPARISON OF relatively few events were observed at follow-up. It is noteworthy that patients in Ontario ≥65 years old are eligible to receive a one-year supply of clopidogrel DIABETICS, would not be a reality. First, I wish to after DES placement and most of the younger express my sincere gratitude to the Head of the Cardiology Department, for their supervision and findings because randomized studies have not shown guidance in completion of this thesis. I would like to a mortality benefit (22-24). With regard to the thank Dr. Anzor Melia, Dr. Khatuna Jalabadze, efficacy of DES among diabetic patients, we found Kakhaber Etsadashvili, and Dr. Georgi Getmasky for that future TVR was reduced by approximately one half compared with BMS. Furthermore, the absolute reviewing the thesis and making it more meaningful rate reduction in TVR continued to diverge in our and Mr. Alexandra for his technical help with the study period favoring diabetic patients treated with angiogram retrieval from database.
