The Rotational Atherectomy System 

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a prevalent cardiovascular condition characterized by the narrowing of arteries due to the buildup of plaque. 

The rotational atherectomy system, also known as rotablation, is an advanced interventional cardiology procedure designed to address heavily calcified coronary arteries.

Understanding Rotational Atherectomy 

During a rotational atherectomy procedure, a specialized catheter with the rotating burr at its tip is carefully guided to the site of the calcified lesion within the coronary artery.

The rotational atherectomy system is often used as a complementary technique alongside other interventions, such as balloon angioplasty and stenting. 

Complementary Technique 

The decision to use the rotational atherectomy system depends on various factors, including the severity of calcification, lesion location, and patient characteristics.
