Abstract: Objective To evaluate the safe and effectiveness of Firebird TM drug-eluting Stent in aged patients (pts) with coronary artery disease.Methods From november 2004 to september 2005,52 pts were treated with Firebird stents.Follow-up outcomes of the pts were for 6 months.Results Seventy-two Firebird Drug-eluting Stents were placemented in 52 pts.Among them,there were 25(79.71%) pts with long coronary lesion,23(33.33%)pts whith smaller reference vessel diameter and 4 pts with stent restenosis.Procedure success rate was 100%. Fourty-six pts were successfully follow-up for 6 months following operation. Two pts had suffered recurrent angina. None had target lesion revascularization and myocardial infarction or cardiac death. Nine pts received repetition of coronary angiography after 6 months of interventional procedure with no stent restenosis.Conclusion Firebird TM drug-eluting stent was safe and effective for aged pts with coronary heart disease,and might be still effective for pts with small vessel lesions or long lesions.
