SoundBite Device

Soundbite Medical is focused on providing simple, safe and effective interventional solutions to improve and transform the standard of care for vascular calcification

  • Calcification is a dominant hallmark of advanced atherosclerotic disease, and is often underestimated and undertreated. Problematic calcium in the form of stenosis and chronic total occlusions (CTOs) are encountered frequently in patients with both coronary and peripheral artery disease, posing treatment challenges.
  • Soundbite Medical has developed and deployed a proprietary method to produce shock waves and safely deliver intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) to calcified lesions using an array of waveguides for treatment of patients suffering from calcified, occlusive cardiovascular disease.

A Safe, Simple Solution for Cracking Calcium

At the core of the innovative SoundBite System is a proprietary method to generate, amplify, and deliver shock waves in a safe and controlled manner, using an array of waveguides to calcific lesions across different vascular beds.


  • Efficient on calcium
  • Enables treatment
  • Access difficult-to-reach anatomy


  • Eliminate/reduce risk of perforation, dissection, recoil, embolization


  • Compatible with choice platform
  • Efficient integration in workflow
  • Minimal learning curve

Chronic Total Occlusions (CTOs) Represent the “Last Frontier” of Percutaneous Interventions

The SoundBite XS Crossing System represents an industry-first and only IVL wire-based technology, designed to facilitate the intraluminal placement of conventional guidewires or treatment devices beyond chronic total occlusions of peripheral arteries.

“SFA and BTK chronic total occlusions with proximal hard caps are challenging to cross. There is a high risk for unintentional subintimal wire passage. A dedicated CTO crossing device like the SoundBite Active Wire saves time and increases technical success rate by intraluminal wire passage through the proximal cap and the CTO lesion.”
