Angiographic and optical coherence tomography assessment of the new drug-eluting balloon ESSENTIAL for the treatment of In-Stent Restenosis.

Device: essential

Number of patients: 33

Follow up: 24-month

Essential ISR was presented at EuroPCR 2019.

In this study, the drug-coated balloon essential showed a good efficacy in the treatment of ISR (mostly of DES) in terms of OCT and QCA assessment, which appear to be comparable to the provided by other drug-coated balloons well supported by clinical evidence.

Clinical efficacy seems to be good and maintained on the very long term.
