    Optical coherence tomography in drug-eluting stent restenosis: a technique in need of a strategy

    Despite the high anti-restenotic efficacy of contemporary percutaneous interventional techniques, a substantial number of patients who undergo percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) still present with restenosis. Despite iterations of devices– from plain balloon angioplasty to bare metal stenting (BMS) to drug-eluting stent (DES) therapy – have granted a progressive decline in the rate of this complication, in-stent restenosis remains a critical issue encountered in clinical practice. Owing to the overall increase in the use of DES, the number of patients presenting with DES restenosis is not insignificant in absolute terms. When DES restenosis occurs, it represents a challenging clinical entity in terms ...
