There were no thrombosis events and no TVR/TLR in the Supralimus treated patient’s in-Hospital. The stent thrombosis rate (definite/probable, ARC) up to 6 months was less than 1%. Out-of Hospital adverse events (N=718) included only 2% Cardiac Death, 0.5% MI (Myocardial infarction) and 4.5% of MACE (Major Cardiac Adverse Event). Thus the preliminary data with the Supralimus-Sirolimus Eluting Stent has shown promising results.
