Abstract

Diabetic patients are frequently affected by coronary artery disease (CAD) and are at increased risk of CAD-related adverse events, even after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. If currently available DES have similar safety and efficacy in diabetic and nondiabetic patients is still debated. This prospective, multicenter registry showed similar 3-year outcome in patients undergoing different DES implantation, although diabetic patients, especially those requiring insulin treatment, had significantly higher risk of adverse events than nondiabetic patients. Specific efforts to improve the performance of DES in diabetic patients are mandatory to adequately address the unsolved issue of diabetic patients affected by CAD.
