'Surprising' Uptick in Rates of Revascularization for In-stent Restenosis

from TCTMD

Despite advances in stent technology, an analysis of U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) data indicates that rates of revascularization for in-stent restenosis may be on the rise. Stephen W. Waldo, MD, the study’s lead author, told TCTMD the finding came as a surprise. Another novel finding of the study, which was published online June 28 ahead of print in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions, is that mortality was lower in those treated with a drug-eluting stent versus either plain old balloon angioplasty or a bare metal stent, something Waldo said hasn’t been demonstrated previously. more
