The effects of intracoronary brachytherapy on the natural history of postangioplasty dissections.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the natural history of postangioplasty intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)-detected dissections and to assess the influence of intracoronary beta-radiation on dissection resolution. BACKGROUND Intracoronary radiotherapy is considered to impair exaggerated vessel healing. Conversely, excessive healing… (More)
