Clogged Stents

Has anyone seen any information about anything new for people who have been angioplastied and stented and then had he stents clog with either clotting or restenosis with plaque?
Has anyone had a repair that DIDN'T involve bypass surgery?
Perhaps something like "re-angioplasty" within the stent or atherectomy with a "roto rooter bit," or even a stent with a stent?

Re: Clogged Stents

Lenin I know of a fellow who had the radiation therapy done to the scarred area and he has not yet had to have bypass. This happened to him about 2 1/2 years ago. He has even continued to smoke and not had any problems since.
