To the Editor: Dr Holmes and colleagues1 reported the results of the Sirolimus-Eluting Stent vs Brachytherapy in Patients With Bare Metal In-Stent Restenosis (SISR) trial, in which they demonstrated that sirolimus-eluting stents are superior to brachytherapy in patients with in-stent restenosis. Rather than merely abandoning brachytherapy because of logistical difficulties, it would be helpful if the authors provided additional information.
