VIDEO: Explaining Sudden Cardiac Death to Patients - Illustration by Rahul Doshi, M.D.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest | October 28, 2016

It is critical to educate patients who are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), so Rahul Doshi, M.D., director of electrophysiology, associate professor of clinical medicine, Keck Medical Center of University of Southern California, explains sudden cardiac death (SCD) to his patients using a simple illustration. Visit SCDFacts.org for additional resources for you and your team to support the SCD conversation with your patients. One in five post-AMI patients have been shown to be at high risk of dying after PCI.1 The majority of mortality in AMI patients post-PCI occurs in the first three months — one out of every 10 high-risk patients die, with about 60 percent of this mortality due to SCD.[1,2]

Shockwave Medical’s Lithoplasty System uses ultrasonic waves to treatment calcified plaque in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). It was cleared by the U.S. FDA in September 2016. The technology is the first of its kind in interventional cardiovascular medicine. Using similar lithotripsy technology that is already in use to break up kidney stones, the balloon catheter cracks and breaks up calcium in vessel walls, without the need to over inflate the balloon, which can lead to extensive vessel damage.  Read the article "FDA Clears Lithoplasty Balloon That Shatters Calcified Lesions With Ultrasound."
