Abstract

High‐speed rotational ablation is ideal in the treatment of chronic calcified atherosclerotic lesions. This report describes an elderly woman with a prior history of coronary artery bypass surgery, who developed cardiogenic shock secondary to occlusion of a saphenous vein graft to the obtuse marginal branch of the circumflex coronary artery. Her left main coronary artery was heavily calcified and almost completely occluded. She was treated successfully by high‐speed rotational ablation of her left main stenosis. © 1995 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
