Drug-coated balloons (DCB) have been developed in recent years to overcome some of the DES limitations. There is an established indication for the use of DCB in the treatment of in-stent restenosis and they are also variably used in various setting, in particular small coronary vessels and bifurcations. Until 2016, all DCBs available in Europe eluted paclitaxel, a highly lipophilic drug with narrow therapeutic window. In April 2016 a new sirolimus-coated balloon (SCB, Magic Touch®, Envision Scientific PVT, India), obtained the CE Mark. This device shares a new-generation delivery system and is able to release in a few seconds an effective dosage of sirolimus.
