Title:
Repeat intracoronary beta-brachytherapy using a rhenium-188-filled balloon catheter for recurrent restenosis in patients who failed intracoronary radiation therapy. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Conventional percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in restenotic lesions after brachytherapy failure is associated with a high recurrence rate of restenoses and revascularizations. Intracoronary brachytherapy using a liquid rhenium-188-filled balloon in de novo or restenotic lesions safely and effectively reduced restenosis rates. We report clinical and angiographic data regarding the safety and efficacy of rhenium-188 brachytherapy in restenoses after brachytherapy failure. METHO...    »
