TCT 2018 | PREPARE-CALC: Rotational Atherectomy vs. Cutting Balloon in Calcified Lesions

Compared against conventional predilation with balloon, rotational atherectomy is associated with higher procedural success rate in severely classified lesions. Balloons capable of modifying plaque such as the Flextome Cutting Balloon or the AngioSculpt Scoring Balloon -among others- could reach similar results to that of rotational atherectomy, though this has not been tested so far. 200

Important Study Suggests that Rotational Atherectomy Is Feasible with Transradial Access

Rotational atherectomy is a very important tool in the treatment of heavily calcified and non-dilatable lesions. Historically, transfemoral access has been the gold standard due to a perceived need for large-bore guidewire catheters in order to use spheroids for proper debulking. Nowadays, rotational atherectomy has evolved towards a technique that aims to modify plaque for

Incidence of ‘Slow Flow’ After Rotational Atherectomy of Calcified Arteries

Courtesy of Dr. José Álvarez ‘Slow flow’ may complicate a rotational atherectomy procedure, especially when done on severely and extensively calcified lesions and small caliber vessels. Although its incidence is between 3% and 27%, its cause remains unclear, and it is thought that platelet antiaggregation induced by burr rotation speed may be behind it.
