Let’s LINC up in Leipzig!

We are looking forward to LINC 2020 in Leipzig, Germany for many reasons – it’s a top international vascular conference and we’re still craving glühwein in these cold winter months – but above all, we’re excited to announce the lineup for our very first ever Shockwave IVL Booth Speaker Series!


We are honored to have six esteemed IVL-expert physicians speaking at our Shockwave IVL booth on the first three days of the conference, 28-30 January.  These speakers will share their broad and unique applications of our technology for treating cardiovascular calcium.  Check out these headliners, and join us at the booth to learn how IVL cracks calcium from the Iliacs to the ankles!
