OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the efficacy and safety of paclitaxel-coated balloon plus bare-metal stenting (BMS) in chronic total occlusions (CTOs). BACKGROUND Drug-eluting stent implantation after recanalization of CTOs is limited by the occurrence of restenosis and risk for late stent thromboses. METHODS In this prospective, bicenter trial we treated 48 patients after successful chronic total occlusion (CTO) recanalization in a native coronary artery with paclitaxel-coated balloon… CONTINUE READING
