85 year old woman with critical aortic stenosis and severe rest pain. Not a surgical candidate due to lung disease. Calcified near-occlusion of distal aorta and no transcaval or subclavian access option available. 7.0mm x 60mm Shockwave IVL delivered to bilateral iliac arteries. Post-IVL safe passage of a 26mm Medtronic Evolut R TAVR/TAVI device followed by endovascular femoral repair. Patient discharged the following day.
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.
