1 doctor agrees

In brief: Similar to stenting

The risks of rotational atherectomy include a 1% combined risk of stroke, heart attack, death, perforation of the coronary, and emergency heart surgery.
These are average risks for a large population of patients. Risks in an individual patient may be higher.
