In-stent restenosis (ISR) has long remained as the major limitation of coronary stenting. The use of drug-eluting stent (DES) reduces the risk of repeat revascularization without an increase of death and myocardial infarction, compared to the standard bare metal stents. DES has also demonstrated markedly to reduce ISR for complex lesions. However, ISR after DES implantation still occurs and optimal treatment for ISR after DES has not been established. Herein, we report 3 cases with black hole restenosis confirmed by intravascular ultrasound at the site of overlapped DES and discuss potential mechanism and optimal strategy for this phenomenon.
