Balloon Catheter

This channel includes news and new technology innovations for angioplasty balloon catheters (PTA). These are used in arteries with atherosclerotic lesions to compress the plaque expand the artery lumen to reopen occluded or heavily stenosed atherosclerotic lesions. Balloons are often used in combination with a stent to prop the treated vessel segment open. In addition to plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA), this section includes news about drug-coated balloon (DCB), valvuloplasty balloons and specialty cutting balloon.
