Primary purpose treatment

Primary Outcomes

Measure
The primary objective is the angiographical determination of the late lumen loss in the stent and/or persistent area, 6 month after stent implantation.
time frame: week 26 +/- 14 days

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
The angiographical determination of the binary restenosis rate, defined as diameter stenosis of at least 50 % in the stent and / or persistent area, 6 months after stent implantation.
time frame: week 26 +/- 14 days
The angiographical determination of the degree of stenosis, defined as percentage diameter stenosis in the stent and /or persistent area, 6 months after stent implantation.
time frame: week 26, +/- 14 days
Tthe angiographical determination of the minimal lumen diameter in the stent and / or persistent area, 6 months after stent implantation.
time frame: week 26, +/- 14 days
The 6 months after stent implantation determined combined endpoint of abrupt and subabrupt closure of the target vessel, target lesion revascularisation and major adverse cardiac events including myocardial infarction and death.
time frame: week 26, +/-14 days

Additional Information

Official title Local-Tax Trial: Local Intracoronary Administration of Paclitaxel After Stent Implantation for Prevention of Restenosis in Comparison With Stent Implantation Alone and With Implantation of a Paclitaxel-Eluting Stent
Principal investigator Christian Herdeg, PD
Description The aim of the study is to examine whether in patients with stable or instable Angina pectoris and/or documented myocardial ischemia in the presence of de-novo stenosis in native coronary arteries with a degree of stenosis between 50 % and 99 % an additional local administration of paclitaxel after implantation of a conventional stent is superior to the implantation of a conventional stent alone with respect to late lumen loss (LLL). In case of superiority it will be examined whether an additional local administration of paclitaxel after implantation of a conventional stent is not inferior to the implantation of a paclitaxel-eluting stent with respect to late lumen-luss. Is this the case, superiority will be tested.
