This report describes the treatment by rotational atherectomy of three ostial branch lesions that originated within stented segments of the left main trunk. In case 1, a rotablator was used for a jailed left circumflex coronary artery by NIR stent after inadequate dilatation by Kissing balloon technique. In case 2, a jailed LCx ostial stenosis by Bx Velocity stent and distal chronic total occlusion were treated by rotablator. A Multi-Link Tristar stent strut was ablated by rotablator before treating diffuse stenosis in the left anterior descending coronary artery in case 3. Excellent results were obtained without obvious distal embolism in various settings of stent jail.
