Abstract

This case demonstrates that PCI is often challenged by mechanical factors related to vessel tortuosity, calcifications and prior proximal stenting. Optimal selection of an appropriate guiding catheter, wire and stent often results in mechanical success, which is the first step towards procedural and long-term clinical success.
