Impact of smoking on the outcome of patients treated with drug-eluting stents: 1-year results from the prospective multicentre German Drug-Eluting Stent Registry (DES.DE).
Summary of "Impact of smoking on the outcome of patients treated with drug-eluting stents: 1-year results from the prospective multicentre German Drug-Eluting Stent Registry (DES.DE)."
Cigarette smoking strongly increases morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular causes, but the relevance of smoking in patients treated with drug-eluting stents (DES) is unknown.
To assess the impact of smoking on the presentation and outcome of patients treated with DES. METHODS AND
We analyzed data from the prospective multicentre German Drug-Eluting Stent Registry (DES.DE) and identified 1,122 patients who had never smoked and 1,052 patients who were current smokers. Smokers were younger (56.5 vs. 69.4 years, p < 0.0001), more often males, with less frequent diabetes and hypertension compared to non-smokers. Smokers presented more often with acute coronary syndromes. After a mean follow-up of 12.5 months, smokers had both higher mortality (4.6 vs. 2.7%, p < 0.05) and myocardial infarction (MI) rates (4.9 vs. 3%, p < 0.01). There was no significant difference between smokers and non-smokers in the rate of target vessel revascularization (9.8 vs. 11.4%, p = 0.26). Major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (defined as the composite of death, MI and stroke, MACCE) were higher in smokers (10.6 vs. 6.1%, p < 0.001). Moreover, after adjustment for baseline clinical and angiographic variables, smoking continued to be a strong independent predictor for MACCE (OR = 2.34, 95% CI 1.49-3.68). In a subgroup analysis, we found that the increased risk of smoking was most prominent in patients presenting with stable angina pectoris (OR = 3.71, 95% CI 1.24-2.57, p < 0.05). Smoking almost doubled the risk for MACCE in acute MI patients, though this did not reach statistical significance (adjusted OR = 1.91, 95% CI 0.93-3.94, p = 0.74).
This large multicentre DES registry provides evidence that smokers treated with DES, despite lower incidence of predisposing risk factors for atherosclerosis, experience higher rates of death and MI compared to non-smokers, particularly in the setting of stable coronary artery disease. Smoking has only marginal effects on target vessel revascularization rates in patients treated with DES.

Although several studies reported that drug-eluting stents (DES) are able to reduce restenosis incidence without increasing mortality, concerns still exist about their safety in ST-segment elevation m...
We investigated the association of serum magnesium (Mg) levels and major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation.
The main objective of the study is to determine whether PCI for in-stent restenosis with a drug eluting balloon is angiographically non-inferior to PCI with a drug eluting stent at 6 month...
Drug eluting balloons (DEB) have been developed to overcome the limitations of drug eluting stent (DES), but clinical results of different studies about DEB are not consistent. Thus, we p...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of drug eluting stents is associated with higher rates of death, myocardial infarction, and major bleeding. In addition, the overa...
Drug eluting stents significantly reduced the rate of in-stent restenosis in coronary arteries. There are several kinds of DES i.e. eluting the drug either from stable or biodegradable pol...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.
Physiological and psychological symptoms associated with withdrawal from the use of a drug after prolonged administration or habituation. The concept includes withdrawal from smoking or drinking, as well as withdrawal from an administered drug.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Discontinuation of the habit of smoking, the inhaling and exhaling of tobacco smoke.
Motivational state produced by inconsistencies between simultaneously held cognitions or between a cognition and behavior; e.g., smoking enjoyment and believing smoking is harmful are dissonant.
