Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
Target Lesion Failure (TLF) at 12 Months Post-index Procedure. TLF is Defined as Any Ischemia-driven Revascularization of the Target Lesion, Myocardial Infarction (Q-wave and Non-Q-wave), or Death Related to the Target Vessel. - The number of participants who experience a TLF through 365 days post-procedure out of the participants who have either had a TLF within 365 days post-procedure or who were TLF-free with last follow-up at least 335 days post-procedure.

12 months post-index procedure
Secondary outcome [1] 0 0
In-segment Percent Diameter Stenosis at 9 Months Post-index Procedure - The minimum lumen diameter in the analysis segment at 9-months post-index procedure, divided by the reference vessel diameter at baseline. The analysis segment ("in-segment") is defined as the proximal edge, stented area, and the distal edge, where each edge segment contains up to 5mm immediately outside the stent.

Summary
Brief summary
The purpose of the TAXUS PERSEUS Workhorse trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of
the next-generation Boston Scientific TAXUS paclitaxel-eluting coronary stent system (TAXUS®
