About Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) occurs when leg arteries become narrowed or blocked by plaque. These blockages can result in severe pain for patients, limited physical mobility, and life-threatening non-healing leg ulcers. According to the American Heart Association, this condition affects approximately 8 to 12 million Americans. With only about 25 percent of PAD patients undergoing treatment, it is a disease that is largely under-diagnosed and under-treated. If left untreated, PAD can lead to critical leg ischemia, a condition where not enough blood is being delivered to the leg to keep the tissue alive. Total loss of circulation to the legs and feet can cause gangrene and lead to amputation.

About the SilverHawk Plaque Excision System

The SilverHawk Plaque Excision System is a catheter-based technology used primarily by interventional cardiologists, radiologists, and vascular surgeons for the treatment of PAD. The device uses a small rotating blade to shave away plaque from inside the artery. As it is excised, the plaque collects in the tip of the device and then is removed from the patient, thereby restoring blood flow with minimal barotrauma and no permanent implant. Over 200,000 cases using the SilverHawk Plaque Excision System have been performed since the product first became available in 2003.
