    Optical Coherence Tomography After Rotational Atherectomy
    The percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in calcified lesions is a challenge for the intervening cardiologist and quite often the need for devices to modify the plaque, such as rotational atherectomy (RA), to achieve appropriate expansion and apposition of the stents.1 The optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new high resolution intracoronary diagnostic technique that has proven useful in the study of atherosclerotic lesions2 as well as during the PCI3,4 and in the evaluation of the neointimal stent coverage.5 The OCT findings are described in a patient with a calcified lesion treated with RA and drug eluting
