DES and modern stent technologies for in-stent restenosis

The implantation of metallic stents has become a standard procedure to improve the outcome after angioplasty of peripheral vessels. However, the occurrence of in-stent restenosis is hampering the long-term efficacy of these procedures and is associated with re-occurrence of symptoms. The optimal treatment modality for in-stent-restenosis in the peripheral vasculature is not well examined. This review discusses the existing evidence for the treatment of in-stent restenosis with drug eluting stents (DES) and modern stent technologies.


KEY WORDS: Peripheral artery disease - In-stent-restenosis - In-stent stenosis - Drug eluting stents
