Objective: Although stents reduce the restenosis rate, stent restenosis continues to be a major problem and the optimal treatment of stent restenosis is still controversial. In this study, we aimed to investigate the angiographic recurrent stent restenosis rate at 6-12 months after successful cutting balloon angioplasty (CBA) for the bare metal stent restenosis.
