  • EXCITE ISR Study

  • The objective of the EXCITE ISR study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the Spectranetics Laser Catheters in subjects who have narrowing within a prior stent. Subjects will be randomized, like a flip of a coin to receive either the laser procedure or percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) alone. Subjects will be followed for approximately 13 months. The research procedures that will be done are that of laser treatment if randomized to that group and intravascular ultrasound if enrolled into the total occlusion arm of the study.
