Coronary and peripheral arteries shock wave lithotripsy

The shockwave/intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) is a smart intervention capable of modifying the calcium present in the arteries to accommodate the stents better and improve results.

There are many cases of suboptimal angioplasty, either peripheral or coronary, due to the presence of calcium in the vessel walls, making it desirable to treat the calcium first.

The Clinics of the Heart has the tools for optimal coronary and peripheral angioplasty even in cases with severe calcification.
