Atherosclerosis is a progressive inflammatory disease of the large and medium sized arteries, which is characterized by the formation of plaques in the vessel wall. The morphology and composition of the plaque play a major role in its stability during the development of the disease.

The CTS system allows to deliver coronary cryotherapy intended for stabilization of vulnerable plaque with non-significant stenosis. Vulnerable plaque at high risk of rupture will be assessed by NIRS-IVUS imaging modality in patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).

The ICEBERG study is an early feasibility single arm study enrolling a maximum of 45 patients. After enrolment of the first 5 patients in the First-in-Man safety cohort, the trial will enroll and randomize 40 eligible lesions in the randomized cohort of which 20 will be treated with cryotherapy.
