Percutaneous transluminal coronary balloon angioplasty (PTCA) has had limited success with higher complication and restenosis rates in aorto‐ostial lesions. Directional coronary atherectomy (DCA) has been advocated as an alternative to PTCA in such lesions. In this report, we describe a potential complication of DCA in right coronary ostial lesions.
