Directional Atherectomy Systems Healthcare Professionals

HawkOne Directional Atherectomy System

Treat above and below the knee with the HawkOne™ directional atherectomy system to restore blood flow by removing plaque in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The HawkOne device treats all plaque morphologies, including severe calcium. Enhanced crossing and simpler cleaning make your procedure more efficient. If your treatment goal is to make a small channel or to maximize luminal gain, choose the Medtronic directional atherectomy system to preserve a patient's native vessel and keep future treatment options open.

Indications, Safety, and Warnings

TurboHawk Peripheral Plaque Excision System

Remove plaque that impedes blood flow and circulation in the legs with the TurboHawk™ peripheral plaque excision system. Choose from a High Efficiency Cutter model that can tackle calcified plaque or a Smooth Cutter model that can treat mild-to-moderately calcified lesions. Proven clinically in the landmark DEFINITIVE LE trial, the study found that diabetic PAD patients fared as well as nondiabetics and that claudicants had high patency at 12 months when treated with plaque excision technology. 1

SilverHawk Peripheral Plaque Excision System

Preserve the native vessel and keep future treatment options open for PAD patients when you treat with the SilverHawk™ peripheral plaque excision system. Use the device's directional cutter to shave soft-to-mild plaque, while the nosecone captures the material for removal from the artery. The SilverHawk technology is backed by the landmark DEFINITIVE LE clinical study, which found that PAD patients with critical limb ischemia who were treated with plaque excision experienced a high rate (95%) of limb salvage at 12 months.1
