Distal embolization during directional coronary atherectomy

Abstract

We report 2 cases of directional coronary atherectomy performed by using the Percu-Surge™ System to prevent distal embolization. A discrete amount of material was aspirated after the procedure. No clinical sequelae occurred in the immediate follow-up. These cases underline the problem of distal embolization during directional atherectomy, and the possibility to prevent it by using protection devices.
