This is an experimental technique in which ultra low frequency sound waves are used to disrupt chronic totally occluded vessels in which a conventional guidewire cannot be passed. Direct contact and cavitation are thought to be the mechanisms. This procedure is not routinely performed, even in major medical centers.
