Lithoplasty Technology

Traditional devices and techniques for treating occlusive calcified lesions generate suboptimal and unpredictable outcomes often leading to significant soft tissue damage requiring additional treatment. The most advanced of these devices targets only superficial calcium, leaving the mid and deep calcium un-affected, frequently resulting in poor lesion dilation.

Delivered on a standard balloon catheter platform, Lithoplasty Technology combines the calcium disrupting power of lithotripsy with the familiarity and simplicity of a balloon in a single enabling device.

Therapeutic Applications

Shockwave Medical initially developed Lithoplasty Technology to treat calcified plaque in patients with Peripheral Artery Disease. Lithotripsy pulses selectively target and disrupt calcium in the peripheral vasculature, improving tissue flexibility with minimal damage to soft tissue. Lithoplasty Technology is built on a familiar balloon catheter platform, so that even historically challenging Peripheral Artery Disease patients can be treated effectively with little alteration to existing angioplasty technique or procedure flow. Shockwave Medical will continue to expand its focus, using the same core technology, to address calcium in both coronary artery disease and heart valve disease.

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is characterized by the buildup of calcified plaque in the extremities.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is caused by the accumulation of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries.

Valvular Heart Disease is linked to a significant presence of calcified plaque in the aortic and mitral valves.

Who is Shockwave Medical?

Shockwave Medical is looking to change the standard of care for advanced cardiovascular disease by specifically targeting a major obstacle to effective treatment: calcified plaque.
