OBJECTIVES: The RESOLUTE trial examined the safety and efficacy of a next-generation zotarolimus-eluting coronary stent, Resolute (Medtronic CardioVascular Inc., Santa Rosa, California). BACKGROUND: Revascularization benefits associated with current drug-eluting stents are often diminished in the presence of complex coronary lesions and in certain patient cohorts. Resolute uses a new proprietary polymer coating that extends the duration of drug delivery to match the longer healing duration often experienced in more complex cases. METHODS: The RESOLUTE trial was a prospective, nonrandomized, multicenter study of the Resolute stent in 139 patients with de novo coronary lesions with reference v..View full abstract
