Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

PAD - Admiral Extreme

 

PTA balloons come in various sizes, lengths and shapes, depending on the anatomy they're intended to treat. The acronym "PTA" comes from "percutaneous transluminal angioplasty" (percutaneous means "through the skin").

A PTA balloon catheter has an inflatable "balloon" at its tip which is used during a minimally invasive catheterization procedure. This procedure is intended to enlarge a narrowed vessel opening. The deflated balloon is positioned at the narrowed space, inflated for a short period of time, and deflated again to be removed.
