To the Editor: Dr Stone and colleagues1 compared paclitaxel-eluting stents with vascular brachytherapy (VBT) for in-stent stenosis within bare-metal stents. In the “Comment” section, the authors stated, “Because of both greater acute gain and less late loss, luminal dimensions were significantly larger with paclitaxel-eluting stents compared with VBT in the injury zone, at the distal edge, and over the entire analysis segment.”
