Redefining Interventional Therapy for Severely Calcified Lesions

AVS is an early-stage medical device company that is focused on safely and effectively treating severely calcified arterial disease. AVS is the first company to develop the Pulse IVL™ System, a device that delivers intravascular lithotripsy therapy through a balloon-based platform. It is designed to be the only minimally invasive technology that gently shatters calcium and opens the artery using a single device.
