Abstract

In-stent restenosis lesions were divided into 2 groups according to the use of cutting balloon (n = 76) or conventional balloon angioplasty (n = 407) before γ-brachytherapy. Cutting balloon angioplasty, compared with conventional balloon angioplasty, in patients undergoing γ-brachytherapy for in-stent restenosis is associated with less requirement for new stents (11% vs 22%, p = 0.02) but similar target vessel revascularization (35.1% vs 29.8%, p = 0.4) at follow-up.
