Eccentric calcium has always been a ‘pain’…a real thorn in the interventionalists’ side. While current devices in eccentric calcium often expand the healthy, non-calcified side of the artery or fall subject to wire bias that prevents it from reaching the calcified side of the artery, coronary Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) offers a new alternative that can modify both concentric and eccentric calcium equally as well. Don’t be satisfied with less than ideal stent expansion in eccentric calcium, instead learn how Dr. Margaret McEntegart has used IVL to modify eccentric calcium in the left main and hear Profs. Holger Nef & Carlo Di Mario share their recent publications and clinical data comparing IVL outcomes in eccentric and concentric calcified lesions.
