In this study, restenosis after coronary angioplasty is evaluated in a series of 291 consecutive patients according to ACE genotypes. The authors conclude that the ACE 2ID polymorphism has no effect on progressive restenosis after balloon angioplasty, but it is implicated in a distinct mechanism of restenosis (thrombosis and occlusion) that could explain discrepancies among previously published studies.
