EuroIntervention Journal: ORBIT II study

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of severe coronary artery calcification (CAC) is challenging. The ORBIT II study demonstrated the safety and efficacy of orbital atherectomy (OA) in patients with severe CAC. Microparticulate liberated during OA may disturb the coronary microcirculation. In the present study, we evaluated OA treatment in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction.
