Abstract

The beStent is a new stainless steel, balloon-expandable mesh stent which has a unique serpentine design. Rotation of the unique low stressjunctions upon expansion leads to orthogonal locking of the wires, maximizing radial strength and assuring zero shortening. The stent has delineating gold markers which assure precise positioning. We aim to present the initial acute results in a pilot registry for stent evaluation. Two hundred eighty-four stents were used in a total of 217 patients (age 57.9 +/- 3.10 years; 178 males; 39 females) in seven centers, for variable indications. Stents of 15-, 25-, and 35-mm length were used The arteries treated were the left anterior descending (n = 112, 42%), circumflex (n = 54, 20.2%), right coronary (n = 95, 35.5%), left main (n = 1, 0.4%), and vein graft (n = 5, 1.9%). Lesion types were: A in 42 patients (16.5%), B1 in 53 patients (20.7%); B2 in 81 patients (31.8%); and C in 79 patients (31%). One hundred fifty-nine patients required one stent, 40 patients required two stents, and 18 patients required three or more stents. Anticoagulation protocol included procedural heparin with aspirin with/without ticlopidine. Smooth angiographic results were obtained in all cases,vith no plaque herniation. Acute angiographic success was obtained in 97% of the patients, and acute clinical success in 95% of the patients. Complications within 30 days were:3 deaths (1.4%) (2 noncardiac); 2 (0.9%) myocardial infarctions; and 2 (0.9%) stent thromboses. Therefore, the beStent is useful in treatment of complex lesions of variable length and complexity, providing excellent acute results with a low complication rate, in spite of unfavorable basic clinical and angiographic characteristics.
