Coronary stenosis resisting to dilatation: a complex challenging situation

With the collaboration of the GRCI (Groupe de Réflexion sur la Cardiologie Interventionnelle)

Learning Objectives

  • To understand which coronary lesion can be resistant to balloon angioplasty
  • To become familiar with rotational atherectomy for this indication
  • To share difficulties for the treatment of a patient with resistant coronary stenosis

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Can we predict whether coronary stenosis may resist to dilatation?
  • Limitations of balloon angioplasty
  • Use of rotational atherectomy and other tools
  • How to manage complications in the treatment of a resistant coronary stenosis?
  • Lessons learned
