PMID:  12972119     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The study reports the results of directional atherectomy with an 8Fr guiding catheter-compatible atherectomy catheter in a series of 31 in-stent restenotic lesions. This preliminary experience indicates a favorable safety profile, with events limited to non-Q-wave myocardial infarction occurring in 3.6% of patients. The secondary end point regarding the incidence of angiographic restenosis at 6 months showed a high restenosis rate (65%).
