in-stent restenosis drug-eluting balloon everolimus-eluting stent optical coherence tomography Abstract
Background: The optimal treatment of bare metal stent restenosis is still not defined. The most employed contemporary option is the implantation of a drug-eluting stent (DES). However, this procedure implies the addition of a second metal layer in the vessel wall, which is linked to delayed healing. Furthermore, there may be a increased risk of malapposition of both struts of the bare metal and the newly implanted drug-eluting stent. These phenomena may give rise to an increased risk of stent thrombosis in this patient population. Recently, drug-eluting balloons (DEB) ...
