Evaluation of safety and efficacy of ProNOVA XR, a new generation of polymer-free sirolimus eluting stents (SES), utilizing a pharmaceutical excipient for timed release of sirolimus from the XR platform.


Safety and efficacy of ProNOVA XR coronary stent system was examined in EURONOVA prospective, single arm, multi-center registry of 50 patients with de novo native coronary lesions up to 28 mm in length in arteries between 2.25 and 4 mm. At 6-month, in-stent late lumen loss by QCA was 0.45 ± 0.41 mm and in-stent neointimal volume obstruction in the IVUS sub-study was 14 ± 11%. One-year clinical follow-up revealed a favorable safety profile, with 2% of in-hospital MACE and 6.4% of MACE from hospital discharge up to 12 months (including 1 cardiac death >30 days after stent implantation and 2 TLRs). According to the ARC definition, there was no definite or probable stent thrombosis and 1 possible stent thrombosis (2%) up to 12 months of clinical follow-up.


In this preliminary evaluation, ProNOVA XR polymer-free sirolimus eluting stent system appeared safe with an early promise of adequate effectiveness in the treatment of de novo coronary lesions in up to 12 months of clinical, angiographic and IVUS follow-up.
