Calcified plaque poses numerous challenges to successful percutaneous coronary intervention.[1] Stent delivery and optimal stent expansion become more difficult with a calcified plaque.[2] Procedural complications and long-term adverse outcomes are worse and closely correlated with increasing severity of coronary artery calcification.[3] Abstract: Copyright (c) 2019, StatPearls Publishing LLC.
