Although directional coronary atherectomy permits the treatment of complex coronary lesions, its use is limited in patients with peripheral vascular disease by the need to use a large guiding catheter. We describe a patient in whom the right brachial approach was successfully used to perform atherectomy of a semi-protected left main coronary stenosis.
