Superimposed stents in the management of acute recoil after Palmaz- Schatz stenting

Robert J. Lederman, Mauro Moscucci

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report a patient in whom aorto-ostial stenting with a Palmaz-Schatz coronary stent was complicated by significant acute elastic recoil, despite appropriate positioning of the stent and full expansion of a high-pressure, postdilatation balloon. Superimposing a Palmaz biliary stent overcame the inward radial force of this lesion and achieved an adequate lumen.
