METHODS: A meta-analysis of randomized studies that compare DES and BMS in patients with femoropopliteal occlusive artery disease.


RESULTS: Five clinical trials met the inclusion criteria. Results showed that using DES yielded a higher arterial patency rate (RR 1.41; 95% CI 1.23-1.61), reduced restenosis rate (RR 0.46; 95%CI 0.33-0.63), and had a lesser tendency for repeat revascularization (RR 0.29; 95% CI 0.16-0.51) compared with BMS. However, no statistical significance was noted between the two interventions in terms of mortality rate (RR 0.93; 95% CI 0.47-1.83) and ankle brachial index score (mean difference of 0.06; 95% CI 0.02-0.09).
