Treatment of unprotected left main (ULM) in-stent restenosis (ISR) is still highly challenging for interventional cardiologists; data are limited and the optimal strategy still debated. Drug-coated balloons (DCB) have an acknowledged role for ISR treatment. Until 2016 all DCB available in Europe eluted paclitaxel; since then, a new device coated with sirolimus, the Magic Touch (Envision Scientific PVT, India), has been marketed in Europe. This device also shares new technological characteristics that render it appealing for complex cases. We here present the first case of distal bifurcation ULM ISR treated with sirolimus-coated balloons simultaneous insufflation with a kissing-balloon technique.
