Challenging Calcium
Made Shockingly Easy

Address the Challenges of Calcium Without Compromising
Watch IVL Animation
MINIMIZE TRAUMA - Minimize trauma to soft tissue by safely selecting and fracturing intimal and medial calcium
 
OPTIMIZE OUTCOMES - Optimize outcomes while reducing complications and cost escalation
 
SIMPLIFY PROCEDURES - Simple and intuitive system that makes complex calcified procedures more predictable
 

Established on the Principles of Kidney Stone Treatment.

Adapted for Calcium in the Cardiovascular System.

Urologic Lithotripsy

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

1
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
2
An electrical discharge from the emitters vaporizes the fluid within the balloon, creating a rapidly expanding & collapsing bubble that generates sonic pressure waves
3
The waves create a localized field effect that travels through soft vascular tissue, selectively cracking intimal and medical calcium within the vessel wall
4
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.
