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).
