In the intricate realm of coronary interventions, healthcare professionals often encounter challenges posed by tortuous anatomies. Nearly 40% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) present with moderate or severe tortuosity*, making it a prevalent clinical concern (Data from RECONQUISTHA).
