BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intracoronary radiation reduces recurrent in-stent restenosis (ISR). Repeat radiation may become necessary due to recurrent ISR. This study reports outcome-related dose calculations for twice-radiated coronary artery segments. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 22 patients with angiographic evidence of ISR in a previously treated native coronary artery were assigned for repeat percutaneous coronary intervention and intravascular brachytherapy (IVBT).
