What is the risk of restenosis after drug-eluting stent placement?Evidence-based answer: The rates of restenosis requiring revascularization for drug-eluting stents are 4% to 6% at 6 months and 7% to 10% at 3 years (SOR: A, systematic review of RCTs). Newer generation drug-eluting stents with everolimus and zotarolimus provide better results, with revascularization rates of 3% at 2 years (SOR: B, retrospective cohort study).
