In-Stent Use of Intravascular Coronary Lithotripsy for Restenosis and Stent Underexpansion: A Multicentre Experience

      Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of severe calcified lesions is at high risk of complications (dissection, perforation, stent underexpansion, etc) and suboptimal results have been associated with major cardiac adverse events. Intravascular lithotripsy uses acoustic energy to disrupt the calcified plaque by creating microfractures. The Shockwave C2 (Shockwave Medical Inc, Santa Clara, CA) intravascular lithotripsy system (S-IVL) was approved by the Food and Drug Administration after studies confirming its safety and efficacy.
