The homeostasis model assessment enabled us to evaluate insulin resistance easily and accurately in the clinical setting. The restenosis rate of coronary stenting was significantly higher among patients with high values for the homeostasis model assessment. Our findings suggest that insulin resistance measured by the homeostasis model assessment predicts restenosis after coronary stent placement in nondiabetic patients.
