How does the Pulse System work?

Pulsatile 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 pIVL 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 PIVL ballon enables the low-stress expansion of the surrounding soft tissues to maximize luminal gain
