Views 1133

62-year-old male presented with new onset Class III angina, NIDDM and positive MPI for multivessel ischemia in inferior, lateral and anterior walls. A Cardiac Cath on September 6, 2019 revealed 3V CAD: 100% proximal RCA, 80% calcified proximal LAD/D1 bifurcation Medina (1,1,1), calcified 80% mid LAD, calcified diffuse subtotal LCx-OM2 with SYNTAX Score of 39 and LVEF of 40%. After Heart Team discussion, CABG was recommended, but declined by the patient. Patient is now planned for Impella assisted protected PCI of calcific LAD and LCx using rotational atherectomy.
