Calcium is more common than you think
In the United States, over 30% of all patients treated for PCI present with some degree of calcium. This represents a 31% increase over the last two decades alone. Patient complexity is increasing; risk factors such as an aging population, renal failure, hypertension, and an increasing prevalance of Type C lesions indicate that calcific lesions will continue to be present.1
Calcium can present complications
A range of complications can arise during a procedure, including: dissection during balloon angioplasty or pre-dilatation2, difficulty with complete dilation3, inhibition of adequate stent expansion4, prevention of stent delivery to the desired location5, stent under expansion or malapposition6, insufficient drug penetration and subsequent restenosis7.
Calcium is a predictor of worse outcomes
Optimal treatment is necessary to improve long-term patient outcomes.
Moderate to severe calcium creates a significantly higher chance of complications like MI, TLR, MACE and death.8
Target vessel failure is higher in cases with severe calcification. At two years, TVF was 16.4% for those with severe calcification vs. 9.8% than those without severe calcification.9
