Abstract

The use of drug-coated balloons (DEB) for preventing restenosis is new and has received increasing interest. We present a patient who was admitted with recurrent angina with repeat interventions for restenosis events in a very short time using both BMS and DES. The restenosis was treated with kissing drug eluting balloons in the LAD-Diagonal bifurcation. More than one year after the DEB PCI, the patient is free from symptoms.
