An aggressive approach to percutaneous revascularization (PR) with frequent use of atherectomy resulted in high rates of limb salvage and patency. Smoking cessation and excisional atherectomy may improve patency rates.

In the drug-eluting stent (DES) era, rotational atherectomy (RA) remains utilized primarily to modify heavily calcified plaque. In unadjusted analysis, procedural success appears high with subsequent stent placement (DES or BMS) versus RA alone. However, 1 in 4 are not candidates for stent placement, and the lower procedural success rate in this population should be considered prior to embarking on RA.

Therapies targeting this pathway can potentially prevent acute mental
stressors from initiating plaque rupture. Limited evidence suggests that appropriately timed administration of beta-blockers, statins and aspirin might reduce the incidence of triggered myocardial infarctions. Stress management and transcendental meditation warrant further study.
