Our doctor, Dr Paul Chiam, recently published a report in the journal “AsiaIntervention” (AsiaIntervention 2021 Dec; 7(2):116-117), where a Shockwave balloon was used to dilate the narrowed leg artery of a patient, who then underwent successful TAVI. Without this Shockwave balloon, TAVI via the groin (leg artery) would not have been possible or might have caused injury to the artery.
