In her inaugural address, Dr Kini informed that Rotablator will  help in clearing calcified lesions which were not possible to be treated through standard angioplasty balloons. Doctors can place stent easily once the lesion is cleared and this would also reduce the need of going in for a surgery, she further added.

Dr RL Kamath, Head of the Department of Cardiology, Dr MV Prabhu, Dean, Dr Anand Venugopal, Medical Superintendent of KMC Hospitals and others were present.

The Rotablator technology can remove plaque by abrading atherosclerotic material producing millions of micro particle smaller than RBC which are cleared by RE System, it also improves initial success rate and reduces the restenosis rate in coronary angioplasty.
