Severely calcified mid-LAD involving septal branch; patient was high-bleeding risk and IABP used for hemodynamic support; operators wanted to avoid distal embolization for this patient and chose IVL; 3.0mm IVL catheter used across diffuse calcified disease; significant fractures seen under OCT in multiple planes; circumferential and well-apposed 3.0x32mm DES.
We're excited about IVL's potential in aortic stenosis, too!
But, right now we're in the early phases of the R&D program. In the meantime,
don't miss the IVL application that heart teams are embracing already — maintaining transfemoral TAVR access
through heavily calcified iliacs by using IVL.
