How does the PULSE IVL™ System work?
Pulse Intravascular Lithotripsy™ utilizes low intensity, high frequency pressure waves to generate fractures in the plaque and expand stenotic lesions to restore blood flow.
Waves are delivered to calcified vessels through a noncompliant balloon that simultaneously fragments calcium and dilates the artery during the same treatment session.

CROSS: Cross the lesion with the PULSE IVL™ Catheter delivered over an 0.014” wire. Prime to 0.5 atm to enable energy transmission.
PULSE: Low-intensity, high-frequency pulses are transmitted by the balloon to the calcium, initiating lithotripsy.
SHATTER: PIVL™ therapy cracks intimal and medial calcium, increasing vessel elasticity
EXPAND: The non-compliant PULSE IVL™ Balloon enables the low-stress expansion of the surrounding soft tissues to maximize luminal gain
