This is a prospective, single-arm, multi-center study to evaluate the safety and performance of the OAS in treating de novo, severely calcified coronary lesions in adult subjects. Study is going to enroll up to 429 subjects in up to 50 U.S. study sites. The primary safety endpoint is 30-day MACE and primary efficacy endpoint is procedural success. All subjects will be treated with the orbital atherectomy system and adjunctive stent. All subjects will be followed in clinic at 30 days. Additionally, all subjects will have an annual phone call or clinical follow up at each anniversary until study is closed.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary Safety Endpoint: 30-Day Freedom From Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE) [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    OAS safety was measured by a composite of MACE at 30-days post procedure. MACE is composed of:

    • Cardiac death.
    • MI - defined as a CK-MB level > 3 times the upper limit of lab normal (ULN) value with or without new pathologic Q wave.
    • TVR - defined as revascularization at the target vessel (inclusive of the target lesion) after the completion of the index procedure.

  • Primary Efficacy Endpoint: Procedural Success [ Time Frame: Participants were followed from baseline procedure through the duration of hospital stay, an average of 33.6 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Procedural success was defined as success in facilitating stent delivery with a residual stenosis of <50% and without the occurrence of an in-hospital MACE in de novo, severely calcified coronary lesions.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Angiographic Success [ Time Frame: Baseline procedure, with a mean total procedure time of 52.5 minutes. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Angiographic success was defined as success in facilitating stent delivery with <50% residual stenosis and without severe angiographic complications.

  • Severe Angiographic Complications [ Time Frame: Baseline procedure, with a mean total procedure time of 52.5 minutes. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Severe angiographic complications were defined as severe dissection (Type C to F), perforation, abrupt closure, and persistent slow flow or persistent no reflow.

  • 12-Month Freedom From Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The safety of the OAS was measured for the secondary safety endpoint consisting of a composite of freedom from MACE through 12 months of follow-up.

Intervention Details:
    Device: Diamondback 360 Orbital Atherectomy System
    Diamondback 360 Orbital Atherectomy System. The (OAS) utilizes a diamond-coated eccentric crown that, while rotating over an atherectomy guide wire, expands the lumen diameter laterally via centrifugal forces (up to a maximum orbit diameter for a given rotational speed and crown diameter). It is a minimally invasive PCI procedure.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must be 18 or older.
  • Subjects must have a clinical indication for coronary intervention.

  • The target lesion must be a de novo coronary lesion that has not been previously treated with any interventional procedure.
  • The target vessel must be a native coronary artery with a stenosis of >= 70% and < 100%.
  • The target vessel reference diameter must be >= 2.5mm and <= 4.0 mm.
  • The lesion length must not exceed 40 mm.
  • The target vessel must have a TIMI flow 3 at baseline.
  • The target lesion must have evidence of severe calcium deposit at the lesion site based on the protocol criterion.
  • The lesion must be crossable with the study guide wire.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unwilling or unable to sign the ORBIT II Informed Consent Form (ICF).
  • History of any cognitive or mental health status that would interfere with study participation.
  • Currently enrolled in any other pre-approval investigational study (does not apply to long-term post-market studies unless these studies might clinically interfere with the current study endpoints (e.g., limit use of study-required medication, etc.).
  • Female subjects who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant within the study period.
  • Known hypersensitivity or contraindication to aspirin, heparin, ticlopidine or clopidogrel without adequate alternative medications.
  • Known sensitivity to contrast media, which cannot be adequately pre-medicated.
  • Diagnosed with chronic renal failure or has a serum creatinine level >2.5 mg/dl.
  • Experienced acute MI (STEMI or non-STEMI: CK and CK-MB greater than 1 times the upper limit of lab normal) within 30 days prior to index procedure.
  • History of major cardiovascular intervention within 30 days.
  • Evidence of current (within 6 months) left ventricular ejection fraction ≤ 25%.
  • NYHA class III or IV heart failure.
  • History of a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) within 6 months.
  • Active peptic ulcer or upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding within 6 months.
  • History of bleeding diathesis or coagulopathy or intention to refuse blood transfusion if one should become necessary.
  • Concurrent medical condition with a life expectancy of less than 12 months.
  • History of immune deficiency.
