Direct stenting versus direct stenting followed by centered beta-radiation with intravascular ultrasound-guided dosimetry and long-term anti-platelet treatment: results of a randomized trial: Beta-Radiation Investigation with Direct Stenting and Galileo in Europe (BRIDGE)



Direct stenting versus direct stenting followed by centered beta-radiation with intravascular ultrasound-guided dosimetry and long-term anti-platelet treatment: results of a randomized trial: Beta-Radiation Investigation with Direct Stenting and Galileo in Europe (BRIDGE)



Journal of the American College of Cardiology 44(3): 528-537



OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the efficacy of vascular brachytherapy (VBT) combined with stenting for the primary prevention of restenosis. BACKGROUND Intravascular brachytherapy after stent implantation for de novo lesions has been abandoned for the present.
