The physiopathology and treatment of in-stent restenosis

Abdullah Doğan1, Ömer Kozan2, Nurullah Tüzün1

Percutaneous coronary intervention with stenting is an appropriate alternative to surgical revascularization in the management of coronary artery disease. Despite new medications and techniques, in-stent restenosis still remains an unresolved problem. Brachytherapy and drug-eluting stents are current therapeutic options to reduce in-stent restenosis and decrease the probability of its occurrence, respectively. This article revisits the pathophysiology and current therapeutic modalities of in-stent restenosis.
