Made Shockingly Easy
Address the Challenges of Calcium Without Compromising
PREDICTABLY SAFE - Safely modify calcium while significantly reducing the risk of complications to make procedures more predictable and efficient
DISTINCTLY INTUITIVE - Simplify the treatment of calcium from the very first case via a unique MOA on an intuitive platform
CONSISTENTLY EFFECTIVE - Proven to achieve low residual stenosis across multiple vessel beds by disrupting superficial and deep calcium
Established on the Principles of Kidney Stone Treatment.
Adapted for Calcium in the Cardiovascular System.
30 years of safety data in kidney stone treatment. Sonic Pressure Waves preferentially impact hard tissue, disrupt calcium, leave tissue undisturbed.
Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL)
Miniaturized and arrayed lithotripsy emitters create a localized field effect at the site of the calcium. Optimized energy for the treatment of cardiovascular calcium.

Don’t Crack Under Pressure:
Procedural steps to perform Shockwave IVL
The IVL Catheter is delivered across a calcified lesion over an 0.014" wire and the integrated balloon is expanded to 4atm to facilitate efficient energy transfer
An electrical discharge from the emitters vaporizes the fluid within the balloon, creating a rapidly expanding & collapsing bubble that generates sonic pressure waves
The waves create a localized field effect that travels through soft vascular tissue, selectively cracking intimal and medial calcium within the vessel wall
After calcium modification, the integrated balloon may subsequently be used to dilate the lesion at low pressure in order to maximize luminal gain
What Makes IVL Different:
Unique Mechanism of Action to Disrupt Calcium
Due to its unique mechanism of action, our IVL technology cracks both medial and intimal calcium while minimizing trauma to the vessel wall.
The sonic pressure waves generated by IVL can crack calcium models made of gypsum in only a few pulses due to the high difference in density.
The same sonic pressure waves are harmless to the human touch as there is minimal difference in density of the soft tissues.
