在近期的一项随机临床研究Meta分析中,在股腘动脉重建中使用紫杉醇药物涂层装置,与非药物涂层装置相比,长期全因死亡率更高。然而,这些发现并未在其他数据分析中看到同样的结果,而且可能会因患者的退出和失访产生混淆。为评估药物涂层装置与非药物涂层装置在股腘动脉重建中,对全因死亡率的影响。研究者进行了深入的研究,并于2019年2月12日在JAMA Cardiology 杂志网站上在线发布。




对1,883家医院的16,560位接受治疗的患者开展研究,患者的平均年龄为72.9岁,7,734(46.7%)为男性,12,232(73.9%)为白人,8,222(49.7%)目前吸烟或有吸烟史,9,817(59.3%)有糖尿病,8,450(51.0%)有严重的肢体缺血(critical limb ischemia,CLI)。5,989位(36.2%)参与者使用药物涂层装置。中位随访时间为389天(四分位范围在277~508天之间)。在所有的患者中,术后600天内,使用药物涂层装置治疗,与非药物涂层装置相比全因死亡率的累积发生率更低(分别为32.5% vs 34.3%;P=0.007)。对单独使用DCB或DES(使用或不使用DCB)治疗分层时,也观察到类似的生存趋势。

经过多变量调整后,结果显示药物涂层装置与非药物涂层装置在全因死亡率方面无差异(HR 0.97;95%CI 0.91~1.04;P=0.43),无论合并CLI(HR 0.93;95%CI 0.85~1.01;P=0.09)或者无CLI(HR 0.94;95%CI 0.85~1.03;P=0.20),只用DCB治疗(HR 0.94;95%CI 0.86~1.03;P=0.17)或DES联合或不联合DCB(HR 0.97;95%CI 0.89~1.06;P=0.48),这些结果都是一致的。

Importance  In a recent meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials, femoropopliteal artery revascularization with paclitaxel drug-coated devices was associated with increased long-term all-cause mortality compared with non–drug-coated devices. However, to our knowledge, these findings have not been replicated in other data sources and may be subject to confounding from missing data associated with patient withdrawal and loss to follow-up.

Objective  To evaluate differences in all-cause mortality between patients who were treated with drug-coated devices vs non–drug-coated devices for femoropopliteal artery revascularization.

Design, Setting, and Participants  This nationwide, multicenter retrospective cohort study included 16 560 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services beneficiaries who were admitted for femoropopliteal artery revascularization from January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2016. All-cause mortality was analyzed through September 30, 2017.

Exposures  Drug-coated devices (drug-eluting stent [DES] or drug-coated balloon [DCB]) compared with non–drug-coated devices (bare metal stent or uncoated percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloon).

Main Outcomes and Measures  The primary outcome was all-cause mortality analyzed through the end of follow-up.

Results  Among 16 560 patients treated at 1883 hospitals, the mean (SD) age was 72.9 (11) years, 7734 (46.7%) were men, 12 232 (73.9%) were white, 8222 (49.7%) currently or had previously used tobacco, 9817 (59.3%) had diabetes, and 8450 (51.0%) had critical limb ischemia (CLI). Drug-coated devices were used in 5989 participants (36.2%). The median follow-up was 389 days (interquartile range, 277-508 days). Among all patients, treatment with drug-coated devices was associated with a lower cumulative incidence of all-cause mortality compared with treatment with non–drug-coated devices through 600 days postprocedure (32.5% vs 34.3%, respectively; log-rank P = .007). Similar survival trends were observed when treatment was stratified by using a DCB alone or DES with or without DCB. After multivariable adjustment, drug-coated devices were not associated with a difference in all-cause mortality compared with non–drug-coated devices (hazard ratio [HR], 0.97; 95% CI, 0.91-1.04; P = .43). These findings were consistent among those with CLI (HR, 0.93; 95% CI, 0.85-1.01; P = .09) or without CLI (HR, 0.94; 95% CI, 0.85-1.03; P = .20), and for those treated with DCB alone (HR, 0.94; 95% CI, 0.86-1.03; P = .17) or DES with or without DCB (HR, 0.97; 95% CI, 0.89-1.06; P = .48).
