Several approaches have been taken to relieve restenosis inside a vascular stent. In a patient with a complicated history of coronary artery disease, a restenotic lesion inside a Gianturco-Roubin flex stent was relieved by angioplasty and deployment of three 10 mm Palmaz P-104 "biliary" stents, with urokinase and verapamil used to prevent thromboembolism and the no-reflow phenomenon. An angiographic study 6 months later showed a patient graft with no residual stenosis.
