Catheters, Vascular, Angioplasty, Ultrasound Ablation

Definition : Angioplasty catheters that use ultrasonic energy for ablation of atheroma. These catheters typically consist of a multilumen 7 to 9 Fr tube that includes a 1.5 to 2.6 Fr solid-wire ball-tipped probe with an ultrasonic transducer at its proximal tip and an irrigation channel to cool the ultrasound probe. Ultrasonic angioplasty catheters may be used to open total occlusions or high-grade stenosis in arteries, including calcified arteries; they may also be used to facilitate balloon angioplasty.
