Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Stentablation with rotational atherectomy for the management of undilatable underexpanded coronary stents is a unique application associated with excellent periprocedural and in-hospital outcomes. Data regarding long-term outcomes remains limited, however the procedure appears to be associated with high prevalence of target lesion revascularization. Given the complexity of such lesions and few available interventional remedies; it is a reasonably safe and widely available approach of which operators should be aware. When stentablation is performed, the principles which guide contemporary rotational atherectomy and percutaneous coronary intervention, including intravascular imaging, should be applied.
