The first devices used in the field of interventional cardiology were percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) balloon catheters. If it was not because of subsequent restenosis occurrences, they would still be the only device necessary for atherosclerosis treatment. Restenosis was the major problem plaguing interventional cardiology before stents were developed. With the advent of bare-metal stents, revascularization rates dropped; and with the introduction of drug-eluting stents, dropped further.
PTCA balloon catheters can differ in size and material compliance as each case demands a different type of device. Depending on lesion extension and density, PTCA balloons require specific features, such as lesion-crossing capability, vector force or pressure. For this reason, PTCA balloons can have very advanced features, helping physicians to ensure that the lumen is clear and prepared for a stent deployment.
