  • Lesions containing visible thrombus
  • Treatment with other modality than balloon or stent (ablation, brachytherapy, ultrasound) in connection with the index procedure
  • Diffuse coronary disease distal to the treated lesion
  • Heavily calcification
  • Lesion located in saphenous vein graft
