Rotational Atherectomy / Rotablation

Rotational Atherectomy (Rotablation) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat calcified and heavily stenosed (narrowed) coronary arteries. 

It involves using a high-speed rotating diamond-coated burr to shave off the calcified plaque and clear the artery lumen, improving blood flow to the heart.
