Disrupt CAD III With the Shockwave Coronary IVL System

The study design is a prospective, multicenter, single-arm, global IDE study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Shockwave Medical Coronary Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) System in de novo, calcified, stenotic coronary arteries prior to stenting. Disrupt CAD III is being conducted as a staged pivotal study.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

Inclusion Criteria:

   1. Subject is ≥18 years of age

   silent ischemia) suitable for PCI

   3. For patients with unstable ischemic heart disease, biomarkers (troponin or CK-MB) must
   be less than or equal to the upper limit of lab normal within 12 hours prior to the
   procedure (note: if both labs are drawn, both must be normal).

   procedure or at the time of the procedure from the side port of the sheath.

      2. If biomarkers are drawn at the time of the procedure from the side port of the
      sheath prior to any intervention, biomarker results do not need to be analyzed
      prior to enrollment (note: CK-MB is required if drawn from the sheath).

   5. Left ventricular ejection fraction >25% within 6 months (note: in the case of multiple
   assessments of LVEF, the measurement closest to enrollment will be used for this
   criteria; may be assessed at time of index procedure)

   6. Subject or legally authorized representative, signs a written Informed Consent form to
   participate in the study, prior to any study-mandated procedures

   7. Lesions in non-target vessels requiring PCI may be treated either:

      uncomplicated (defined as a final lesion angiographic diameter stenosis <30% and
      TIMI 3 flow (visually assessed) for all non-target lesions and vessels without
      perforation, cardiac arrest or need for defibrillation or cardioversion or
      hypotension/heart failure requiring mechanical or intravenous hemodynamic support
      or intubation, and with no post-procedure biomarker elevation >normal; or

      minimum lumen area ≤4.0 mm²

10. The target vessel reference diameter must be ≥2.5 mm and ≤4.0 mm

11. The lesion length must not exceed 40 mm

12. The target vessel must have TIMI flow 3 at baseline (visually assessed; may be
   assessed after pre- dilatation)

13. Evidence of calcification at the lesion site by, a) angiography, with fluoroscopic
   radio-opacities noted without cardiac motion prior to contrast injection involving
   both sides of the arterial wall in at least one location and total length of calcium

   OCT, with presence of ≥270 degrees of calcium on at least 1 cross section
