Abstract

We report the results of an intervention in a high-risk surgical patient undergoing rotational atherectomy in a bifurcating lesion. The use of fractional flow reserve (FFR) was especially helpful due to the inability to visualize clearly the angiographic anatomy both before and following intervention.
