Role of Second-Generation Drug-Eluting Stents and Bypass Grafting in Coronary Artery Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Methods: We systematically searched the PubMed, Cochrane Library, Ovid, and Elsevier databases. Studies comparing second-generation DESs with CABG in CAD patients were included. RevMan 5.3 was used to extract and pool the data from the applicable studies.
Results: Six trials (N=6604 participants) were included in this meta-analysis. Among all of the CAD patients, second-generation DESs were associated with no differences in the risks of all-cause death [risk ratio (RR) 1.18, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.98‐1.43, P=0.09], cardiovascular death (RR 1.14, 95% CI 0.81‐1.59, P=0.45), myocardial infarction (RR 1.22, 95% CI 0.98‐1.54, P=0.08), and stroke (RR 0.83, 95% CI 0.59‐1.17, P=0.29), but increased the risks of revascularization (RR 1.95, 95% CI 1.66‐2.30, P<0.001) and major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (RR 1.72, 95% CI:1.31‐2.26, P<0.001) when compared with CABG.
Conclusions: In the treatment of CAD patients, second-generation DESs was not associated with increased risks of all-cause death, cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, and stroke, but increased the risks of revascularization and major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events when compared with CABG.
