High-speed rotational ablation addresses specific limitations inherent in conventional methods of percutaneous revascularization. The Rotablator system represents an alternative mechanism to achieve restoration of luminal dimensions by removing atherosclerotic plaque. This article summarizes results, identifies indications, and discusses potential applications of rotational ablation in the treatment of coronary artery disease.
