Excimer coronary laser atherectomy (ECLA) has been shown to be both well tolerated and effective for plaque modification. Its technology is based on ultraviolet energy and is capable of disintegrating atheroma, without burning or grossly fragmenting it. ELCA has proven effective in the percutaneous treatment of a variety of complex lesions. Here we present a case of multiple heavy calcified lesions successfully prepared with ELCA and finally treated with the implantation of multiple bioresorbable scaffolds.
