In-stent restenosis has always been an important issue, since the launch of the first stents on the market. The occurrence of in-stent restenosis (ISR) is due to two main reasons. First, the presence of stent fractures significantly influences restenosis rates. Second, the continuous interaction between the permanently implanted artificial material and the vessel tissue, leads to physical irritation, long-term endothelial dysfunction, or chronic inflammatory reactions. In the Literature only very limited data on ISR treatment in the peripheral arteries are available. There are no peer-reviewed publications or studies with in-depth follow-up on this specific indication. The underlying reason for this probably being that currently available treatments do not yield satisfactory results. However, the continuing search for better solutions and the technological evolution lead to the introduction of the Viabahn with PROPATEN coating, DES and DCB, which may result in the first promising treatment options for ISR.
