Abstract

This multicenter experience sought to investigate the feasibility and safety of BVS for the treatment of ISR. From April 2012 to June 2014, a total of 315 patients (334 lesions) underwent PCI for ISR at the participating centers. Of those, 83 patients (90 lesions) received BVS. Procedural success was achieved in all patients. At a median of 7 (IQR 3-18) months follow-up, MACCE rate was 12%, TLR 7.7%, while one (1.1%) definite BVS-in-stent thrombosis was reported. The results of this multicenter experience suggest that BVS implantation for the treatment of coronary ISR is technically feasible and associated with favorable mid-term clinical results. These data could be considered hypothesis generating for a future randomized clinical trial.
