The Advantages of Auryon Laser Atherectomy in Calcified Arteries

New research with micro-CT has found that Auryon laser atherectomy is effective in disrupting challenging plate-like, circumferential calcium, suggesting a valuable role for this technology in treating complex cases of peripheral artery disease (PAD).

The Role of Micro-CT in Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

The high-resolution imaging capabilities of Micro-CT are useful in studying calcium in peripheral artery disease (PAD). Dr. John Rundback's cadaveric study uses micro-CT to analyze medial calcium patterns and demonstrates the Auryon laser atherectomy's effectiveness in disrupting challenging calcium buildup.

BioMimics Stent

Interventional Radiologist Dr. Rundback discusses the BioMimics stent design, when to use it in the femoral popliteal artery, & strategies to increase it's effectiveness in peripheral artery disease.

Supera Stent product image

Interventional Radiologist Dr. Rundback shares his expertise on the Supera Stent along with tips & tricks in deploying it & treating peripheral arterial disease in the femoral popliteal artery.
