A 79-year-old man underwent stent implan-tation into a severely calcified proximalleft anterior descending coronary lesion (Figure 1) in December 2012 followed by restenting in March 2014 to treat in-stent restenosis (Figure 2), both without full balloon expansion. Optical coher- ence tomography (OCT) documented thick, peri- stent napkin-ring calcium. He was admitted for recurrent unstable angina in April 2014. After initial treatment with excimer laser coronary angioplasty (ELCA; 1.4 mm, Spectranetics Corporation, Colorado Springs, Colorado) using saline injection, fluence of 60 mJ/mm2, and frequency of 80 Hz, a balloon was fully expanded. OCT showed fracturing of peri-stent

FIGURE 1 Coronary Angiogram, December 2012
Calcium appeared as radio-opaque bands on both sides of the lumen (A, A’) and circumferential (B, B’). A stent (2.75 � 22 mm) was post-dilated by a noncompliant balloon (3.0 � 9 mm, 22 atm) with a final 28% diameter stenosis (DS). Boxed areas in A and B are shown magnified in A0 and B0, respectively.
FIGURE 2 Coronary Angiogram and OCT, March 2014
An additional stent (3.5 � 12 mm) was implanted and post-dilated by a noncompliant balloon (4.0 � 9 mm, 26 atm) with a 39% final diameter stenosis (DS). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed diffuse circumferential calcium (white arrows) behind an underexpanded stent
(white asterisks) with a pre-intervention minimum stent area of 2.75 mm2 and only mild intimal hyperplasia.
