Overview
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 data fromt he Disrupt CAD III Trial, the use of imaging, and the European experience.
