Repeat stenting for the prevention of the early lumen loss phenomenon in patients with in-stent restenosis. Angiographic and intravascular ultrasound findings of a randomized study.

Am. Heart J.. 2005 Feb;149(2):e1-8, PMID: 15846250

Early lumen loss (ELL) may be detected in patients undergoing coronary interventions for in-stent restenosis. This phenomenon may contribute to recurrences. This prospective, randomized study was designed to determine if repeat stent implantation may prevent ELL in patients with in-stent restenosis.
