The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of biodegradable polymer BioMime™ sirolimus-eluting coronary stent (SES) for the treatment of coronary artery disease. This was a retrospective analysis of 73consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention with BioMime SES implantation were included. The clinical endpoint was a major adverse cardiac event (MACE) including cardiac death, myocardial infarction (MI) and target lesion revascularization. The mean patient age was 61.3 ± 12.2 years and 62 (84.9%) were male. A total of 139 lesions were intervened successfully with 73 stents. The average stent length and diameter was 24.4 ± 8.38 mm and 2.79 ± 0.27 mm respectively. The patients characteristics were noted as having 28 (38.4%) diabetics and 36 (49.3%) hypertensive patients. Device and procedural success was 100%. During a mean follow-up at 1.68 ± 0.58 years, the absence of MACE was observed. No stent thrombosis or MI was reported. The present study demonstrated the BioMime SES is safe and effective in "real-world" coronary artery disease patients population.
