IVL for Coronary Calcium Modification, Recorded Case and Panel Discussion
Intravascular Lithotripsy uses sonic pressure waves that pass through soft arterial tissue and preferentially disrupt calcified plaque by creating a series of micro-fractures. After the calcium has been cracked, the artery can be expanded at low pressure and a stent safely implanted to improve blood flow, with minimal trauma to normal arterial tissue.

Watch this panel discussion and live case. Experts in IVL therapy will discuss:
  • Key Insights from Disrupt CAD III Trial
  • Use of OCT with IVL Therapy
  • The European Experience
  • How to Apply IVL Therapy to Practice
