Pulsar efficacy - An all-comers registry: 12-month results 1


  • Pulsar stents showed favorable study results at 12 months in patients with an average lesion length of 11.2 cm
  • A primary patency (PP) at 12 months of 79.5% and Freedom from Target Lesion Revascularization (FTLR) of 81%
  • Results are similar to published data of similar lesion lengths, including 4EVER (Pulsar-18) with a PP of 73.4% and a FTLR of 85.2%
  • No significant difference between TASC A/B vs. TASC C/D lesions (p = 0.55) and diabetics vs. non-diabetics (p = 0.92)
