Abstract: Moderate/severe calcification, present in approximately one-third of culprit lesions in acute coronary syndromes (ACS), portends unfavorable procedural and post-primary percutaneous coronary intervention outcomes. Intravascular lithotripsy is a novel technique using shockwaves to fracture calcific plaques. Presenting a clinical case, we enumerate efficacy and safety parameters in using intravascular lithotripsy in ACS. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
