The longer 135cm shaft allowed me to successfully treat the iliac and common femoral arteries via radial artery access, which I would not have been able to do with the previous generation. Dr. Srivastava, Interventional Cardiologist Northside Hospital

The 8.0mm M5+ has allowed me to use the appropriate size IVL for my EVAR patients. This is important as the EVAR/TEVAR sheaths are larger and having the maximum lumen gain is crucial. Dr. Foteh, Vascular Surgeon Austin Heart Hospital Dr. Foteh is a paid consultant of Shockwave Medical.
