Összefoglaló. A nagy mésztartalmú plakkok által okozott szűkületek percutan intervenciója az esetek egy részében a jelenleg széles körben elérhető megoldások alkalmazásával technikailag nem kivitelezhető. A procedurális sikertelenség vezető oka a meszes laesiók kalciumtartalom miatti fokozott ellenállása a ballonos dilatációkkal szemben, mely lehetetlenné teszi a szükséges sztentek levezetését is. Az ilyen laesiók mésztartalmának csökkentését célzó hagyományos plakkmodifikációs eljárások – mint a rotablatio, a vágó- és ultranagy nyomású ballonok – sem jelentenek megoldást minden esetben, különösen az érfal átmérőjének legalább 50%-át elérő, akár körkörösen jelen lévő meszesedés fennállása esetén. A közelmúltban éppen ezen laesiók mésztartalmának feltördelésére, így a sztentek deponálásának elősegítésére kifejlesztett módszert a szakirodalom intravascularis lithoplastica néven említi. A jelen közleményben a Klinikánkon eddig 4 beteg rendkívül meszes laesióinak jó angiológiai eredményű ellátása során az eszközzel szerzett tapasztalatokat foglaljuk össze. A végeredményt tekintve az intravascularis lithoplastica ígéretes új intervenciós lehetőség a masszívan meszes coronarialaesiók ellátására. Orv Hetil. 2021; 162(2): 69–73.

Summary. Percutaneous intervention of stenoses caused by highly calcified plaques utilizing the currently widely available methods is not possible due to technical difficulties in several cases. Increased resistance of calcified plaques against balloon dilation due to their calcium content plays a leading role in procedural failure, as stent crossing becomes impossible as well. Classical methods of plaque modification for debulking the calcification of such lesions – such as rotablation, cutting and ultra-high pressure non-compliant balloons – do not resolve this issue, especially when calcification exceeds 50% of the vessel diameter. A new method, referred to as intravascular lithoplasty in the literature, has recently been developed to break the calcium and thus promote stent deployment in such lesions. In our current work, we summarize the experience gathered with this method during the treatment of extremely calcified lesions of 4 patients with good angiographic result. As a conclusion, intravascular lithoplasty is a promising new interventional method in the treatment of massively calcified coronary lesions. Orv Hetil. 2021; 162(2): 69–73.
