Yup..all restenosis patients had relapses. Hopefully, the stents will keep the veins open and prevent relapse.
"All patients with restenosis corresponded to those who manifested relapses in the year subsequent to the endovascular treatment. Symptomatic and asymptomatic restenosies were again treated with balloon dilatation."
"internal jugular vein stenosies were present in 94 of 144 patients."
