Calcifications in the blood vessels of the legs can
cause peripheral artery disease, which reduces
blood flow causing pain, and potentially serious
complications.
A new technology by Shockwave Medical is
showing promise in reducing the size and density
of these calcifications and restoring blood flow,
combining lithotripsy technology (the same type of
technology used to pulverize kidney stones) with
traditional balloon angioplasty. The procedure
reduces the size of the calcifications, allowing
traditional treatments (such as stents) to work better.
