Moderated Poster, TCT 120: OCT Characterization of Shockwave IVL for Treatment of Calcified Coronary Lesions: Patient-level Pooled Analysis of the Disrupt CAD OCT Sub-studies, Ziad A. Ali, TCT 2021.

Conclusions from the OCT Pooled Analysis in Concentric Lesions

  • The present individual patient data pooled analysis of 4 studies (N=262) represents the largest evaluation of IVL by OCT
  • No serious angiographic complications were observed confirming the safety of IVL for the treatment of severely calcified coronary lesions
  • OCT demonstrated extensive calcium fracture after IVL treatment with excellent stent expansion of severely calcified lesions
  • Visible calcium fracture and calcium characteristics were not predictors of stent expansion following treatment with IVL
