Heart Surgery in Jerusalem Performed Using Sound Waves

United with Israel

For the first time in Israel, the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem successfully performed a cardiac catheterization using sound waves to treat a complex case of severe arterial congestion.

By TPS

The new catheterization was performed on Sunday with the use of special equipment developed by SHOCKWAVE on a 66-year-old patient with a calcium build-up, and after a previously performed catheterization failed to treat the problem.

The treatment entails the deployment of a tiny balloon filled with fluid and tiny balls at the point where there is a build-up of calcium within the artery. After the balloon is in place, sound waves are triggered to create a rapid movement of the balls which create cracks in the calcium inside the artery.

The cracks allow for the elasticity of the artery and the insertion of a stent in the same location, without damaging the artery.

耶路撒冷的Shaare Zedek医疗中心首次在以色列成功地使用声波进行了心脏导管插入术,以治疗复杂的严重动脉充血。

新的导管插入术是在周日使用由SHOCKWAVE开发的特殊设备对66岁的钙积累患者进行的,并且在先前进行的导管插入治疗无法解决该问题之后。

这种治疗需要在动脉内钙积累的位置展开一个充满液体和微小球的微小气球。 气球放置到位后,会触发声波以使球快速运动,从而在动脉内的钙中产生裂纹。

裂缝允许动脉的弹性和在相同位置插入支架,而不会损坏动脉。
