Abstract

Since the publication of the previous article on the same topic in the journal, as a result of the better understanding in intravascular imaging (intravascular ultrasound [IVUS] and optical coherence tomography [OCT]) and introduction of intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) into clinical practice, the outcomes in patients with calcified coronary lesions have become more predictable and safe with lesser complication rates.
