Coronary Atherectomy

Atherectomy is a procedure that relieves symptoms of coronary artery disease by improving blood flow to your heart. It is done using a small, thin tube (catheter) inserted into a blood vessel and guided to the blocked blood vessel. There, a device is used to grind or vaporize the plaque buildup to improve blood flow. It may be used instead of coronary angioplasty.
