Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation Versus Optimal Medical Treatment in Patients With Chronic Total Occlusion (DECISION-CTO)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of drug-eluting stent implantation compared to optimal medical treatment in patients with chronic total occlusion.

Detailed Study Description

Prospective, two arms, randomized multi-center trial in Asian-pacific region. Following angiography, patients with chronic total occlusion (more than 3 months) have documented myocardial ischemia or symptoms of angina, and eligible for stenting without any exclusion criteria will be randomized 1:1 to: a) drug-eluting stent vs. b) optimal medical treatment.
