A rotablator is a revolutionary technology designed to address complex coronary artery blockages. It is a rotational atherectomy system that employs a high-speed burr to gently remove plaque build-up within the arteries. This targeted approach allows our skilled cardiologists to navigate through intricate blood vessels with unparalleled precision, ensuring optimal outcomes for our patients.

Indications for Rotablator Use

Rotablator is typically recommended for patients with heavily calcified or difficult-to-treat coronary lesions. These may include cases where traditional interventions, such as angioplasty alone, may not be sufficient. Our experienced team carefully evaluates each patient's condition to determine whether Rotablator is the most suitable course of action, ensuring personalized and effective treatment plans.

Our Expertise with Rotablator

At Cardiac Care Associates, our team of cardiologists possesses extensive expertise in utilizing Rotablator technology. Each member has undergone specialized training and holds certifications in advanced cardiac interventions, including the use of Rotablator. Our commitment to staying at the forefront of cardiovascular advancements ensures that patients receive the highest standard of care when choosing Rotablator services at our clinic.

The Rotablator Procedure

The Rotablator procedure is a carefully orchestrated process that begins with comprehensive patient preparation. During the procedure, a catheter equipped with the Rotablator device is threaded through the blood vessels to the site of the blockage. The high-speed rotational burr then precisely ablates the calcified plaque, restoring blood flow. 

Post-procedure care involves monitoring and support to ensure a smooth recovery. Our team is dedicated to providing detailed information and support throughout every step of the process, addressing any concerns or questions that may arise.
