This analysis included 18 trials. Both stenting and drug-coated balloon angioplasty (DCB) had reduced rates of restenosis up to 24 months compared to balloon angioplasty alone. DCB angioplasty had the lowest rate of restenosis and need for target lesion revascularisation at twelve months.Pubmed Link
