An unnamed Russian scientist has introduced the concept of a device that attaches to the wall of the artery. It would first stop blood flow to the area to prevent breakaway plaque. A drill would then scrape the plaque from the artery wall.
The procedure of treating plaque buildup could include bypass surgery, stent replacement and balloon angioplasty. Since the plaques are of different types and locations in the body, the inventor proposed using different types of cutting mills.
