WHY THIS STUDY
- “The cardinal indication for plaque modification is the calcific lesion, which, in the absence of plaque modification, confers an increased likelihood of procedural failure, stent under deployment, restenosis, and major complications”
- “Preparation and debulking of the lesion with rotational atherectomy and special balloons, cutting or scoring, may be useful in highly calcified, rigid ostial lesions”
- Coronary bifurcation is a challenging setting for performing PCI.
