Recently, an everolimus-eluting stent utilizing a bioresorbabale PLA polymer coating to release the agent everolimus has proven safe and effective in preventing restenosis for up to six months in de novo coronary arteries. But the use of a bioresorbable polymer-coated everolimus-eluting stent for in-stent restenosis lesions has not been previously investigated. This is a case report of one-year angiographic follow-up results after the implantation of a bioresorbable PLA polymer-coated everolimus-eluting stent for the treatment of recurrent in-stent restenosis. The case involved a 63-year-old female who had repeatedly presented with recurrent in-stent restenosis in the LCX. We successfully treated this recurrent ISR lesion by using a bioresorbable PLA polymer-coated everolimus-eluting stent; the one-year follow-up angiography revealed prevention of ISR after the implantation of this device.
