The PTCA procedure was performed to 143 patients succesfully until end of December 1989. Of these angiographic follow-up was available in 120 (84 %) patients. The mean age was 50.5±8.7, 128 of these were men: 134 lesions were dilated. 30 patients of this group had to undergo PTCA for the second or third time. Global restenosis rate was 35 % (42 patients). Lesion restenosis rate was 35.8 %. The restenosis rate in the 111 patients with first PTCA procedures was 33.3 % (39 % in the left anterior descending, 20 % in right coronary and 15.4 % in left circumflex artery, p<0.0.001). It was 61.6% in the proximal part of the anterior descending. In 80 % of the patients restenosis was seen in the first three months after the PTCA.
