Chalk, Organic Eggs & Cadaver Legs:

In 2009, a marketer, engineer and cardiologist came together to change the nature of interventional therapy for calcified cardiovascular disease. They envisioned a future in which lithotripsy, a trusted technology used to break kidney stones for more than three decades, could be adapted to crack calcium in undilatable lesions in a potentially easier and safer manner. What started out as a crazy idea is now changing the standard of care for patients with calcified disease around the globe.
