Vascupedia Shockweek Day 2: Changing Parameters in CLTI Treatment
Tune in for session 2 of Shockweek on Vascupedia as Dr. Elias Noory treats multiple highly calcified femoropopliteal lesions with IVL. During the session, our expert panel of Drs Lorenzo Patrone, Enrique Alejandre Lafont, Bella Huasen and Thanos Saratzis discuss how IVL can overcome the pitfalls of CLTI treatment by changing vessel compliance to reduce procedural complications. Dr. Noory and the panel also share pearls of wisdom on how to optimize your IVL strategy to get the best outcomes for patients and crack the calcium conundrum.

Precautions – Use only the recommended balloon inflation medium • Appropriate anticoagulant therapy should be administered by the physician • Decision regarding use of distal protection should be made based on physician assessment of treatment lesion morphology
Adverse Effects – Possible adverse effects consistent with standard angioplasty include: • Access site complications • Allergy to contrast or blood thinners • Arterial bypass surgery • Bleeding complications • Death • Fracture of guidewire or device • Hypertension/Hypotension • Infection/sepsis • Placement of a stent • Renal failure • Shock/pulmonary edema • Target vessel stenosis or occlusion • Vascular complications. Risks unique to the device and its use: • Allergy to catheter material(s) • Device malfunction or failure • Excess heat at target site
