AbstractThe rapid implementation of stents in standard practice and expansion of the indication for their utilization also introduced a new problem: in-stent restenosis. Management of patients with restenosis after stent implantation is still considered an important clinical problem. Although balloon angioplasty is still one of the prefered strategies that provide satisfactory results and a low incidence of complication, repeat stenting with “drug eluting” stents or “drug balloon” angioplasty become a very atractive methods of treatment for selected lesions and patients.
