Comparison of dissection rates and angiographic results following directional coronary atherectomy and coronary angioplasty.


Directional coronary atherectomy is a new percutaneous transluminal technique for treating occlusive coronary artery disease. In this study, angiographic results (i.e., residual stenosis and angiographic evidence of postprocedure dissection) after directional coronary atherectomy and balloon angioplasty were compared. The atherectomy group consisted of 91… (More)
