Calcific Lesion Interventions
Procedural inability to deploy stents was shown to be more frequent in patients with calcified lesions than in those with noncalcified lesions (8.2 % vs 1.8 %, respectively) [1, 2]. Optimal stent delivery and apposition in these calcified lesions mandate adequate debulking.
