    Notes: Abstract The efficacy of repeated percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) was examined in patients with restenosis after PTA for carotid stenosis. After percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for 63 cases of internal carotid stenoses 13 cases of restenosis appeared. They were treated by PTA or carotid endarterectomy. The treatment was chosen by the patient after explanation of each treatment. We initially treated seven patients by repeat PTA and six by carotid endarterectomy. The degree of stenosis improved from 82 % to 30 % on average after repeated PTA. However, one patient in the PTA group had restenosis, and carotid endarterectomy was then performed. The other cases also had restenosis and were treated by PTA. The six cases treated by carotid endarterectomy were successfully treated without difficulty. The success rate of PTA was 5/7 (71 %) in the restenosis cases. Patients with a greater residual stenosis after initial PTA had significantly more frequent restenosis. Repeat PTA and CEA both appeared effective treatment for restenosis after initial PTA, although PTA had a restenosis rate similar to that of initial PTA.
