The first devices developed for interventional cardiology were percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) balloon catheters to reopen coronary arteries. Forty years later, they remain a primary workhorse device in percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). While stents have taken the limelight in terms of the primary focus in PCI, balloons are still the method used to initially revascularize the vessel and to expend the stents into position.
