BACKGROUND: The Washington Radiation for In-Stent Restenosis Trial (WRIST) is a double-blinded randomized study evaluating the effects of intracoronary radiation therapy (IRT) in patients with in-stent restenosis (ISR). METHODS: One hundred and thirty patients with ISR (100 native coronary and 30 vein grafts) underwent PTCA, laser ablation, rotational atherectomy, and/or additional stenting (36% of lesions). Patients were randomized to either Iridium-192 IRT or placebo, with a prescribed dose of 15 Gy to a 2-mm radial distance from the center of the source. RESULTS: Angiographic restenosis (27% vs. 56%, P=.002) and target vessel revascularization (TVR; 26% vs. 66%, P<.001) were dramatically reduced at 6 months in IRT patients. Between 6 and 36 months, IRT compared to placebo patients had more target lesion revascularization (TLR; IRT=17% vs. placebo=2%, P=.002) and TVR (IRT=17% vs. placebo=3%, P=.009). At 3 years, the major adverse cardiac event (MACE) rate was significantly reduced with IRT (39% vs. 65%, P=.003). CONCLUSIONS: In WRIST, patients with ISR treated with IRT using 192Ir had a marked reduction in the need for repeat target lesion and vessel revascularization at 6 months, with the clinical benefit maintained at 3 years.
