What is atherectomy?

Atherectomy is a specialized “pinhole” technique used by imaging and interventional vascular physicians where a specialized tiny instrument is introduced into an area of narrowing. The plaque is then removed using either a rotating shaver or laser, opening up your artery and decreasing your symptoms.
