Coronary stenting can significantly reduce the restenosis and reocclusion rates after successful balloon angioplasty for chronic total occlusions (CTO). Nevertheless, recanalization of CTO remains among the worst predictors for in-stent restenosis and reocclusion. This multicenter, nonrandomized study assessed the safety and effectiveness of the CYPHER sirolimus-eluting stent in reducing angiographic in-stent late loss in totally occluded native coronary arteries. A total of 25 eligible… CONTINUE READING
