Procedure:

Similar to Angioplasty except that the catheter has a rotating shaver on its tip to cut away plaque from the artery.

Major Indications:

  • Increases blood flow through the blocked artery by removing plaque buildup.
  • May also be used in carotid arteries (major arteries of the neck leading to the brain) to remove plaque and reduce risk for stroke.
