[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Previous studies have shown a high restenosis rate after balloon angioplasty for diffuse in-stent restenosis. Debulking strategy has been expected to be helpful to reduce the restenosis rate. This study evaluated the safety and long-term clinical event rate after excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA) and adjunctive balloon angioplasty for in-stent restenosis.
