Abstract

Background: Diabetes mellitus is a life threatening disease accompanied by several microand
macro vascular complications. Several modalities are available for interventional
revascularization of coronary artery lesions, but their efficacy in diabetic patients is studied
only in few patients.
Materials and Method: This study evaluated major in- hospital complications and clinical
outcome after one year in 200 consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous Coronary
Intervention from 2007 to 2009.
Results: Our findings showed comparable single and 2 vessel stenting, regarding major
adverse cardiovascular event in diabetic and nondiabetic patients. In connection with long
term and in hospital outcome, no statistically significant difference was found between one
and two vessel stenting when drug eluting stent was used in diabetic patients.
Conclusion: The use of drug eluting stent in single or two vessel disease of diabetic patients
is technically satisfactory and clinically safe and can substitute for coronary artery bypass
grafting.
