Angioplasty

balloon angioplastyangioplastiespercutaneous transluminal angioplasty
angioplasty or balloon septostomy, via cardiac catheterization (heart cath) Balloon catheters are also utilized in the deployment of stents during angioplasty.
A deflated balloon attached to a catheter (a balloon catheter) is passed over a guide-wire into the narrowed vessel and then inflated to a fixed size.

Balloon septostomy

angioplasty or balloon septostomy, via cardiac catheterization (heart cath)
Balloon septostomy is the widening of a foramen ovale, patent foramen ovale (PFO), or atrial septal defect (ASD) via cardiac catheterization (heart cath) using a balloon catheter.

Ureteric balloon catheter

pyeloplasty balloon catheter
Ureteric balloon catheters are used to treat ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstructions caused by intrinsic wall factors as fibrosis and / or hypertrophic wall problems.
A ureteric balloon catheter is a balloon catheter intended for treating strictures of the ureter.

Cardiac catheterization

angioplasty or balloon septostomy, via cardiac catheterization (heart cath)
Catheterization can also be used to perform balloon septostomy, which is the widening of a foramen ovale, patent foramen ovale (PFO), or atrial septal defect (ASD) using a balloon catheter.

Obstructive uropathy

obstructionobstructive uropathies
Their application is significantly less invasive than other treatments for obstructive uropathy.
Minimal invasive treatment: Overtoom procedure: dilatation with cutting balloon catheter (e.g., Boston Scientific) followed by introduction of the pyeloplasty balloon catheter. This balloon is inflated with pure contrast agent via the pusher and remains in situ in the ureter to keep the previous treated stricture dilated while the expanded urothelium heals. Urine can drain through the central channel of this catheter.
