  • Percentage of successful interventions [ Time Frame: Up to 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A successful intervention is defined by the ability to successfully:

    1. Introduce the PRDS catheter
    2. Position the PRDS catheter
    3. Deliver ultrasound energy
    4. Retrieve the PRDS catheter
  • Percentage of patients with device- or procedure-related adverse events [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Anticipated adverse events include:

    • Puncture site-related events
    • Renal artery stenosis, aneurysm, dissection, or perforation
    • Renal infarction, acute kidney injury, or renal failure
    • Arterial and venous thromboembolic events (including myocardial infarction, stroke, aortic or peripheral artery disease, etc.)
