Drug-Eluting Balloon Angioplasty for Carotid In-Stent Restenosis

  
  
  
  
  
Journal of Endovascular Therapy, 12/05/2012

Liistro F et al. – To report midterm results of 3 cases in which drug–eluting balloons (DEBs) were successfully used for the management of carotid in–stent restenosis (ISR). Drug–eluting balloons (DEBs) are an emerging strategy for carotid ISR, with encouraging midterm results in these patients. Further experience in larger cohorts is needed to confirm these preliminary observations.

This is the first publication of a novel use of drug-eluting balloons: carotid in stent restenosis. These devices are revolutionizing endovascular interventions !!!
