PTA Balloon Catheter Market Projected to Grow Steadily During 2018-2026

A catheter is a tubular, flexible instrument, passed through body channels for withdrawals of fluid (or introduction of fluids) from body cavity. PTA balloon catheter is an innovative medical device, which is inserted in the femoral artery in the leg or sometimes into the radial artery in the arm for the treatment of constricted blood vessels. The PTA means “percutaneous transluminal angioplasty” (percutaneous means through the skin). As the balloon inflates, the cage causes the balloon to form a series of segmented pillows and grooves along the entire lesion. The pillows apply force to create small dissections that are necessary for effective dilatation. The grooves relieve the stress and stop dissections from propagating. The PTA balloon catheters is used in for the treatment of peripheral vascular lesions.
