The patient had already received two sprays of nitroglycerine at the beginning of the diagnostic part of the procedure. The 4 French introducer was replaced by a 5 French left Amplatz 2 guiding catheter, again without using a sheath. 014 inch coronary guide wire first into the takeoff lesion of the first diagonal branch. The reason to start with this lesion was that the noninflated balloon was deemed to have the highest chance of passing through the stent. After an inflation at 10 bar the result was satisfactory.

Moreover, if the plaque proves unstable, the exact treatment will be done that would have been performed without assessing it. If, on the other hand, a plaque proves stable there is no guarantee that it will not turn unstable soon thereafter, perhaps even because of the invasive assessment. Balloon angioplasty has been advocated to seal nonsignificant plaques, thereby removing or at last reducing their potential to subsequently cause a myocardial infarction. 14). Plaque sealing of a nonsignificant stenosis is not yet an accepted procedure, but it is likely to become widespread with the availability of drug-eluting stents, in spite of a specific concern about this combination (see below).

It is well paid in many medical systems. There is a huge industry behind it eager to be kind to the direct consumers of their products, the angioplasty operators. Participation or even organization of pertinent meetings is generally enthusiastically welcomed by peers and sponsors. Although many publish in this field, numerous journals of the highest rank keep a vivid interest in this topic. Finally, coronary angioplasty calls upon the innovator in many an interventional cardiologist or even onlooker.
