Chronic total coronary occlusions constitute a sub-group of lesions at very high risk of restenosis after successful percutaneous coronary intervention. The sirolimus-eluting coronary stent is the only drugeluting stent that has demonstrated to reduce angiographic restenosis and the need for new revascularisation procedures in comparison with bare-metal stents in randomised clinical trials focusing on these lesions. Everolimus-eluting stents have shown to offer optimal angiographic and clinical outcomes in comparison with bare-metal stents and paclitaxel-eluting stents, but no randomised trials have tested the device in chronic total occlusions. The CIBELES (non-acute Coronary occlusIon treated By EveroLimus- Eluting Stent) will randomise 208 patients with chronic total coronary occlusions in 13 centres from Portugal and Spain to receive everolimus- or sirolimus-eluting coronary stents. The primary endpoint will be angiographic in-stent late loss.
