    Abstract

    Percutaneous coronary intervention for the treatment of a severe calcified lesion is still one of the most technically challenging areas of interventional cardiology. Calcified lesions are a cause of stent underexpansion, which significantly increases the subsequent risks of in-stent restenosis and thrombosis, even when drug-eluting stents are used. In this report, we describe the usefulness of prolonged inflations using a scoring balloon catheter (Scoreflex) for severe calcified lesions. Prolonged inflation using a scoring balloon enables an adequate dilation for treatment of a severe calcified plaque that was unresponsive to conventional technique with or without rotational atherectomy.
