The Disease

A Road Block to Moving Forward

The incidence of diabetes and obesity is rising worldwide. These are leading factors contributing to atherosclerosis (blocked arteries) which can cause heart attack, stroke, and limb loss.

Current treatments to restore blood flow and patient quality of life remain inadequate.

Evolving Complexity

Long, occluded, and heavily calcified lesions are becoming the norm.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is the buildup of plaque in the leg arteries, leading to limited blood flow and reduced quality of life. If left untreated the disease can progress to Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) which can lead to gangrene and amputation.

HARD CALCIFIED PLAQUE

As plaque hardens, it becomes more difficult to open arteries without causing damage.
