Inclusion criteria for case group were patients who underwent coronary angiography then candidate for elective CABG and simultaneously had indication for coronary atherectomy
who are had significant and long standing coronary stenosis and surgeon could not performed graft anastomosis to formation of an appropriate lumen size.
This study has several potential limitations: (1) Our study groups were small, due to very limited number of patients underwent coronary atherectomy
in our centre at the time interval (July 2002-September 2004) of the study.
Involvement of C-reactive protein obtained by directional coronary atherectomy
in plaque instability and developing restenosis in patients with stable or unstable angina pectoris.
Our CVX-300(R) excimer laser is the only system approved by the FDA for multiple cardiovascular procedures, including coronary atherectomy
, the treatment of in-stent restenosis prior to radiation therapy, and the removal of problematic pacemaker and defibrillator leads.

and stenting: Predictors, management, and outcome.
