The Pathway PV Atherectomy System is a rotating, aspirating, expandable catheter for active removal of atherosclerotic debris and thrombus in peripheral vasculature.

This is a prospective, single arm, multi-center study to obtain safety and performance data for the Pathway PV Atherectomy System when used as a primary or adjunctive therapy for percutaneous intervention to remove atherosclerotic disease, debris, and thrombus from the lower limb peripheral vasculature.
