Due to the widespread use of stents in complex coronary lesions, stent restenosis represents an increasing problem, for which optimal treatment is under debate. "Debulking" of in-stent neointimal tissue using percutaneous transluminal rotational atherectomy (PTRA) offers an alternative approach to tissue compression and extrusion achieved by balloon angioplasty. One hundred patients (70 men, aged 58 +/- 11 years) with a first in-stent restenosis underwent PTRA using an incremental burr size… CONTINUE READING
