Intravascular Lithotripsy uses sonic pressure waves that pass through soft arterial tissue and preferentially disrupt calcified plaque by creating a series of micro-fractures. After the calcium has been cracked, the artery can be expanded at low pressure and a stent safely implanted to improve blood flow, with minimal trauma to normal arterial tissue.
Watch this panel discussion and live case. Experts in IVL therapy will discuss data from the Disrupt CAD III Trial, how to translate that data to practice, the use of imaging, and the European experience.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Discuss data from the Disrupt CAD III trail
- Reflect on the importance of using imaging in conjunction with IVL therapy
- Summarize lessons learned from European interventional cardiologists using IVL therapy
- View a case using IVL therapy for coronary calcium modification
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1.5 medical knowledge MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
