Importance of Calcium Removal
- Arterial Dissections are commonly associated with plaques containing significant calcium deposits1
- Diabetic Patients have a tendency for higher calcification2
- Drug-Coated Balloon Efficacy could be impacted by calcium3
Jetstream Calcium Study4
To better understand the mechanism of lumen gain when using the Jetstream Atherectomy System to treat calcified peripheral artery lesions, i.e., patients with claudication and lesions with superficial calcium >90° and >5 mm in length as determined by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).
