Unraveling of restenosis: understanding the mechanism and finding a solution, implications of IVUS-3D and brachytherapy
The purpose of this thesis was twofold; firstly, to assess the pathophysiology of restenosis following percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (Part I); secondly, to explore the potential of a novel technique, intravascular beta-radiation therapy, to prevent the recurrence of coronary stenosis after percutaneous treatment (Part II).
