Calcium School of Rock Live Case Series: Previous Episodes
These sessions bring together the world’s best calcium operators to discuss treatment options to master coronary calcified lesions. Watch our 8 episodes On-Demand and learn from 8 different clinical scenarios.
- Review the options for calcium treatment
- Appreciate the value of IVUS guidance in calcified lesions
- Discuss tips and tricks for rotational atherectomy and cutting balloon angioplasty
School of Rock Case #8
Low-contrast modern PCI in the setting of a calcific lesion.
67-year-old female patient with chronic kidney disease, presenting with stable angina and lateral wall ischemia 20 years after undergoing CABG surgery for 3-vessel disease, with a residual severely calcified distal left main stenosis. Watch the step-by-step approach of "modern PCI", through IVUS guidance and plaque modification, live from Bad Krozingen, Germany.
School of Rock Case #7 Live treatment of a calcified Ostial RCA PCI: a step-by-step approach.
74-year-old male patient, presenting with 12 months history of angina (CCS 2), breathlessness (NYHA3), also reported bilateral claudication. Angiography showed severe calcified disease in proximal LAD, LCx, Int and RCA. Watch the step-by-step approached “modern PCI”, with IVUS assessment and plaque modification with rotational atherectomy, live from Cardiff.
School of Rock Case #6: Live proctoring of a calcified mid-LAD bifurcation lesion PCI.
72-year-old male patient, presenting with de novo angina CCS 1, preserved LVEF, who was found to have a Medina 0-1-1 mid-LAD calcified bifurcation lesion. Watch the proctoring of “modern PCI”, with IVUS assessment and plaque modification with rotational atherectomy, live from Toulouse.
School of Rock Case #5: How to treat a challenging Aorto-Ostial calcified lesion.
79-year-old male with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis, stage 3 chronic kidney disease and moderately decreased ejection fraction. Coronary angiography showed a tight calcified proximal RCA stenosis. He has been randomized in the NOTION-3 trial and is planned to undergo IVUS-guided, low contrast PCI prior to his TAVI.
School of Rock Case #4: Coronary calcium in a frail patient
An 80-year-old frail patient s/p TAVR presenting for scheduled PCI of a severely calcified RCA. After failure to cross the distal lesion with 2 different microcatheters, are there still options for PCI?
School of Rock Case #3: Low contrast PCI
77 male. ACS in DEC 2020. LAD treated by rotablation and PCI at that time. Normal LV. Impaired renal function. Returning for completion of revascularisation to treat a dominant RCA. Short functional aorto-ostial occlusion with calcium, plus collaterals and competitive flow in the distal RCA from the left system.
School of Rock Case #2 : Coronary calcified bifurcations
A 53 old gentleman, with calcified LM bifurcation disease, multiple risk factors & very high operator risk
School of Rock Case #1 : Long diffuse calcific stenosis
A 69 year old gentleman with heavily calcified LAD and diffuse calcific stenosis in LAD.
