    Neoatherosclerosis After Paclitaxel-Coated Balloon Angioplasty for In-Stent Restenosis

    In-stent neoatherosclerosis (NA) has been reported after drug-eluting stent (DES) and bare-metal stent implantation. 1 NA is not only more frequent but also occurs earlier in patients undergoing DES implantation compared with those treated with bare-metal stents. 1 This phenomenon has major potential implications because complicated NA (mainly from rupture of a thin-cap fibroatheroma) may result in very late stent thrombosis. 2 Although NA can be visualized using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), optical coherence tomography (OCT), because of its unique resolution (15 μm), appears ideally suited to detect this phenomenon in vivo. 2 We report on a patient treated with a ...
