    Effect of drug-coated balloon on stent restenosis, neointimal proliferation, and coronary dissection: an optical coherence tomography analysis

    Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the acute and mid-term effects of drug-coated balloon (DCB) in terms of the healing process of non-flow-limiting dissections and changes in the neointimal area after DCB treatment using frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT). Patients and methods: Thirty-six consecutive patients with in-stent restenosis pretreated with a scoring balloon were evaluated (19 and 17 patients with and without a DCB, respectively). FD-OCT was performed before and after each procedure during percutaneous coronary intervention and at 6 months of follow-up. Results: Clinical characteristics and baseline FD-OCT findings were comparable between the two groups ...
