Calcified plaque poses numerous challenges to successful percutaneous coronary intervention. Stent delivery and optimal stent expansion become more difficult with a calcified plaque. Procedural complications and long-term adverse outcomes are worse and closely correlated with increasing severity of coronary artery calcification.
