In-stent Restenosis

Chapter

Abstract

In 1998, 539,000 percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) procedures were performed in the United States, an increase of 248% since 1987 [1]. Most of these interventions were followed by stenting. The advent of stents has revolutionized interventional cardiology; however, the Achilles’ heel of stenting is in-stent restenosis (ISR). In this chapter, the patterns, predictors, and treatment options for ISR are outlined.
