PURPOSE: This study compared the angiographic outcomes of paclitaxel-coated balloon (PCB) versus plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA) treatment for de novo coronary artery lesions. At present, there is no available data comparing the efficacy of PCB versus POBA for the treatment of de novo coronary lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This multicenter retrospective observational study enrolled patients with de novo coronary lesions with a reference vessel diameter between 2.5 mm and 3.0 mm and lesion length ≤24 mm who were successfully treated with PCB or POBA. Angiographic measurements and quantitative coronary analysis were performed before and after the procedure, and at 9 months follow-up. RESULTS: A total of 72 patients (49 receiving PCB and 23 receiving POBA) were enrolled in this study. Late luminal loss was -0.12±0.30 mm in the PCB group and 0.25±0.50 mm in the POBA group (p
