Abstract Drug-eluting stents (DES) effectively reduce the rate of TLR compared with bare metal stents (BMS). However, there is concern of an increased incidence of very late stent thrombosis (ST) associated with 1st generation DES potentially related to the durable polymer. The Biolimus-A9™ eluting stent platform (BioMatrix™; BES) releases Biolimus-A9, a sirolimus analogue, from a biodegradable polymer, polylactic acid (PLA), which is degraded into carbon dioxide and water during a period of 6-9 months. The Biolimus-A9 stent with biodegradable polymer has already been shown to be a safe and effective alternative to a sirolimus-eluting stent with a durable polymer (LEADERS). The purpose of the present registry is to capture longterm clinical data of the BioMatrix stent system in relation to safety and effectiveness in a large population. Methods: This registry is a prospective, multi-center registry conducted at 55 European interventional cardiology centers. The studied population is a “real-world, all comers” patients population with no limitations on the number of treated lesions and vessels, and lesion length as well as clinical indication (chronic stable angina vs. acute coronary syndromes). The primary endpoint of the registry is a composite of cardiac death, myocardial infarction (Qwave and non Q-wave), or clinically driven Target Vessel Revascularization at 12 months. Full monitoring of all major cardiac adverse events (MACE) up to 5 years will be obtained, and all MACEs will be adjudicated by an independent Critical Events Committee. Results: Currently 2618 patients have been recruited in the e-BioMatrix registry (status Sept 4, 2009). The 6 months follow-up were performed for the first approximate 400 patients and are still ongoing for the remaining population. Conclusion: The 6-month follow-up adjudicated data of the first 400 patients of the e-BioMatrix registry will be presented at the time of meeting.

Objectives   To evaluate the safety and efficacy of BioMatrixTM in routine clinical use.

Conclusions •  The e-BioMatrix registry preliminary data suggest that the good results from the Biolimus-A9™ eluting stent used in the LEADERS RCT can be reproduced in routine clinical practice. •  In e-BioMatrix, the incidence of stent thrombosis at 6-month appears to be acceptably low. Although the results are preliminary, they suggest the safety profile remains good. •  In this real-world registry the compliance with antiplatelet therapy duration was excellent (95.9% of patients were on DAPT at 6-month).
