Orsiro Sirolimus-eluting stent with biodegradable polymer vs Xience Prima everolimus-eluting stent
- In this 2,119 patient, randomized, all-comers trial, Orsiro demonstrated non-inferiority to Xience Prime for the primary endpoint at 12 months. A similar trend was shown throughout 24 months.
- Orsiro, with its ultrathin struts and bioabsorbable polymer additionally presents superior results in the high-risk subgroup of patients presenting with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) out to 24 months.
