Restenosis after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is strongly associated with incomplete initial dilatation. To determine if oversized PTCA balloons would reduce the restenosis rate without increasing the risk of arterial dissection and acute complications, we prospectively randomized 336 patients to receive either smaller or larger balloons. Thirty-four percent of patients had multivessel disease and 18% had multisite dilatation. One hundred sixty-nine patients were… CONTINUE READING
