Abstract

A 51-year-old man with a history of ischemic cardiomyopathy (LVEF 25%) and known coronary artery disease with prior RCA stenting is referred for angiography for high-risk non-ST elevation myocardial infarction. He was found to have severe in-stent restenosis, which was treated with rotational atherectomy. This case demonstrates rotational atherectomy as one modality that can be used to treat severe in-stent restenosis.
