Abstract

The design of the Simpson atherectomy catheter makes this device a potentially safe and technically easy tool to obtain adequate pathologic intravascular or intraluminal specimens. The risk of perforation should be low, but this use has to be further studied. We describe the first intravascular biopsy performed with the Simpson catheter.
