Coronary angiography classically allows a bidimensional evaluation of the vascular lumen, however with many limitations in case of eccentric lesions, irregular contour or tortuosity of the vessel. Moreover, it does not enable to assess neither the features of the vessel wall, nor the functional significance of a lesion[1]. Newer technologies are available to overcome these limitations. We present a case of percutaneous coronary revascularization optimized by combined use of two of the most widely used techniques.

Abstract

Coronary angiography classically allows a bidimensional evaluation of the vascular lumen, however with many limitations in case of eccentric lesions, irregular contour or tortuosity of the vessel. Moreover, it does not enable to assess neither the features of the vessel wall, nor the functional significance of a lesion[1]. Newer technologies are available to overcome these limitations. We present a case of percutaneous coronary revascularization optimized by combined use of two of the most widely used techniques.
