    Serial Morphological and Functional Assessment of Drug-Eluting Balloon for In-Stent Restenotic Lesions : Mechanisms of Action Evaluated With Angiography, Optical Coherence Tomography, and Fractional Flow Reserve

    Objectives This study sought to elucidate the underlying mechanism through which drug-eluting balloons (DEB) restore coronary blood flow, by assessing the coronary vessel before, immediately after, and at 6-month follow-up with angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and fractional flow reserve (FFR). Background In-stent restenosis (ISR) treatment remains challenging. Drug-eluting balloons have been shown to be a valid treatment option in several studies. These studies focused on efficiency of the device, whereas the mechanisms of action of DEB in ISR treatment have not been investigated. Methods In this prospective, single-center observational study, patients with ISR were treated with a second-generation DEB ...
