The cutter rotates at 2000 rpm, and excised atheromatous tissue is pushed into the distal nose cone. (b) The Rotablator burr is coated with 10-μm diamond chips to create an abrasive surface. The burr, connected to a drive shaft and a turbine powered by compressed air, rotates at speeds up to 200,000 rpm. However, early studies showed that, although acute closure rates were reduced, there was no significant reduction in restenosis. Moreover, these devices were expensive, not particularly user-friendly, and had limited accessibility to more distal stenoses.

Perioperative care of patients with stents Non-cardiac surgery in patients who have undergone recent PCI are at increased risk of stent thrombosis, especially if dual antiplatelet therapy is discontinued. Most stent thromboses occur during or soon after the surgical procedure and in view of the associated high morbidity and death, strategies to minimise the risk are very important. Where possible, PCI should be avoided before non-cardiac surgery. If PCI is necessary, the type of stent (BMS or DES) should be carefully considered as the former requires dual antiplatelet therapy for 1 month only followed by aspirin alone, whereas the latter requires dual antiplatelet therapy for 12 months, followed by aspirin alone.
