Shockwave IVL

Class 4 - Insights into the Mechanism of Action of Intravascular Lithotripsy & Clinical Applicability

We explore the pathophysiology behind the development of coronary arterial calcium explaining its role in coronary artery disease.

We explore what a shockwave is, how it fractures calcium and how coronary shockwave is different from extra-corporeal lithotripsy.

Speakers

James C Spratt

Prof James C Spratt has global experience in training physicians in complex and CTO PCI. He is the Director of Optimal CTO and the author of the Retrograde iBook and co-author of the antegrade iBook.

Ziad Ali

Ziad Ali is the Director of the DeMatteis Cardiovascular Institute, Director of Investigational Interventional Cardiology, and Director of Cardio-nephrology at St Francis Hospital & Heart Center in New York. He is also Director of the Angiographic Core Laboratory at Cardiovascular Research Foundation and Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center. His clinical research interests focus on the use of intravascular imaging and physiology technologies such as optical coherence tomography, intravascular ultrasound, and flow wire assessment to optimize coronary interventions, for which he has served as a Global principal investigator on a number of trials. Dr. Ali is also a recognized innovator, playing an integral role in the development of the Resting Full-Cycle Ratio (RFR) and Shockwave intravascular lithotripsy. Clinically Dr. Ali developed pioneering techniques to perform vascular interventions without contrast administration, including IVUS-guided zero-contrast PCI and OCT using saline flush media, protecting patients with advanced kidney disease from acute kidney injury and the need for dialysis.
