The excimer laser has revolutionary impact on lesion preparation and chronic total occlusion outcomes. Furthermore, this technology has made huge progression in modern percutaneous intervention, especially in ones labeled as noncrossable lesions. This device has the advantage of crossing lesions that 0.14 wire pass through. The mechanism through which excimer laser coronary atherectomy (ELCA) works are photochemical, photothermal, and photomechanical. In this review cases article, we discuss the uses of ELCA in daily catheterization laboratory alone and with other plaque modification tools. We touch on acute coronary syndrome uses of ELCA, no-balloon crossing lesion, and intervening on deformed stents.
