All rights reserved.Abstract: Successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) can be challenging in the presence of heavily calcified lesions. Severely calcified lesions are associated with worse clinical outcomes. Recognition of calcification is important before stenting to ensure adequate stent expansion can be attained. Orbital atherectomy is a safe and effective method to ablate calcified plaque. Lesion preparation through plaque modification with orbital atherectomy before stent implantation can help to optimize the results of PCI in these complex lesions.
