OUR MISSION:

AVS is redefining interventional therapy for severely calcified lesions with the PULSE IVL™ System and its novel, pulsatile mechanism of action that fractures calcium and expands the vessel, all with a single device.

Clinical Applications of PIVL™

The First Application 

Peripheral Artery Disease: Treating severely calcified lesions above the knee and in the femoropopliteal artery

The Next Frontier

Coronary Artery Disease

THE PULSE IVL™ System

Foundational Evidence

Promising preclinical results in severely calcified cadaveric limbs demonstrate ability to Pulse, Fracture and Expand without adjunctive devices

  • Intuitive, deliverable and technically feasible design
  • Shatters circumferential, eccentric, medial and intimal intravascular calcium
  • Expands the vessel using the same balloon that fractures the calcium

The effects [of the PULSE IVL™ System] are pretty striking and at least on parity with most of the other devices that have come across my desk.”
