Purpose: Results of some PCI clinical trials indicated more procedure related complications and worse clinical outcomes in women than men, but due to a lower representation of female patients this question still remains open. We aimed toinvestigate characteristics and early and late clinical outcomes in female patients as compared to male when treated in a real life setting with a new generation DES.Methods: Among 3069 consecutive patients treated with Nobori DES, and enrolled in NOBORI 2 study, 675 were female. The primary endpoint of the study is target lesion failure (TLF), a composite of cardiac death, MI and target lesion revascularization (TLR) at 12 months. Data are entered in an electronic database; all adverse events are adjudicated by an independent clinical event committee and independent corelabs analyse all angiograms.Results: Compared to male patients, female patients were significantly older (68±10 vs ± 63±11 years; p<0.001), had higher incidence of diabetes (37% vs 27%; p<0.001) and hypertension (75% vs 66%; p<0.001), but lower frequency of previous MI, PCI/CABG and smoking history. Lesion characteristics were similar in two genders, except for lesions located at bifurcation which were more frequent inmale patients (22% vs 15% inmale and female patients respectively; p<0.001). Majority of QCA assessed parameters were similar with the exception for RVD, post-procedure MLD in-segment and %DS in-stent which were significantly lower in female patients (p<0.05 for all). In table 1 results at 6 months follow-up are presented and at the time of presentation 1 year results will be available. Table 1. Clinical results at 6 months follow-up Male (n=2394) Female (n=675) P value Cardiac Death 12 (0.5%) 5 (0.7%) 0.5550 MI 5 (2.1%) 4 (1.3%) 0.5089 TLR rate 17 (0.7%) 13 (1.9%) 0.0124 TLF rate 44 (1.8%) 17 (2.5%) 0.2745 Stent Thrombosis 12 (0.5%) 6 (0.9%) 0.2548Conclusions: Results indicate that there are differences in the demographics and risk factors in female and male patient's population. The frequency of adverse events at 6 months is low in both populations, showing trend toward slightly higher rate in female patients, particularly for target lesion revascularization.
