Balloon angioplasty and stenting are two common ways to treat blocked arteries without open surgery. Percutaneous (through the skin) transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloons come in various sizes, lengths and shapes, depending on the anatomy they're intended to treat. Stents are small, expandable metal mesh tubes that hold arteries open.
Whether the treatment is drug-coated balloon angioplasty, plain old balloon angioplasty, or stenting, the goal of peripheral arterial disease treatment is to restore blood flow in a clogged artery. All of these methods require specialised procedures and devices to accomplish this goal.
