Jetstream Atherectomy Mechanism of Action

Jetstream is engineered to predictably treat multiple morphologies, such as calcium, plaque or thrombus, commonly found in total occlusions. As the only atherectomy system with active aspiration, Jetstream removes debris, helping minimize the risk of distal embolization.

CLI Case Studies


CLI Case Study 1:
Complex Revascularization of Critical Limb Ischemia Patient Using Rotational Atherectomy

Dr. Jihad Mustapha demonstrates treatment of a 220 mm CTO in patient with history of CLI, utilizing antegrade and retrograde dual access with rotational atherectomy. 

CLI Case Study 2:
SFA Total Occlusion in Patient with Non-Healing Ulcer

Dr. Fadi Saab demonstrates atherectomy of a CLI patient presenting with a long SFA chronic total occlusion in the left leg, which reconstituted at the proximal popliteal.1

CLI Case Study 3:
Thrombotic Lesion in Popliteal Artery and Tibial Vessels

Dr. Fadi Saab demonstrates atherectomy of a CLI patient presenting with rest pain in right lower extremity. Atherectomy with aspiration was used to remove thrombus in the Popliteal Artery and Tibial vessels, utilizing alterative access techniques. 30-day arterial duplex showed normalization of patient's ABI and triphasic blood flow through SFA/Popliteal and PT arteries.
Results from case studies are not necessarily predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.

Product Detail

The Jetstream Atherectomy System features:

  • Active Aspiration: extracts debris without device removal, minimizing embolization risk.
  • Debulking: to treat multiple lesion morphologies, including calcium, plaque or thrombus. 
  • Luminal Gain: As reported in the Calcium Study, Jetstream's front-cutting, expandable blades created statistically significant luminal gain in severe and moderate calcium (post versus baseline IVUS measurements)2.
  • Front-cutting: to immediately engage tight or occluded lesions.
The system is an innovative peripheral revascularization platform designed to restore flow through the many types of lesion morphologies encountered in peripheral arterial disease (PAD). System consists of a single-use catheter with control pod and a reusable, compact console power source that mounts to a standard I.V. stand
