  • Cutting
  • For instance, cutting and drug eluting balloons have now been developed. (comunicati.net)
  • Cutting balloons are forecast to grow at rapid rate owing to their ability to reduce vessel stretch and injury through longitudinal vessel scoring. (comunicati.net)
  • insertion
  • The variable distention angioplasty balloon assembly, for insertion into a blood vessel, comprises an inner elongated, inflatable balloon having a distal portion, a proximal portion and an intermediate portion therebetween and defining therein a first chamber. (google.es)
  • radial
  • The dilation structure with variable characteristics has a first diameter and pressure characteristic curve defined by a first rate of radial expansion dependent on the Young's modulus of the inner balloon and a second diameter and pressure characteristic curve defined a second rate of radial expansion dependent upon the combined Young's modulus of the inner balloon and the outer balloon. (google.es)
  • 6. The assembly of claim 1, wherein said first rate of radial expansion of said inner balloon ranges from about 1% per atmosphere of internal balloon pressure to about 5% per atmosphere of internal balloon pressure. (google.es)
  • experimental
  • Endovascular radiation appears to be a novel technique, which, by use of either β- or γ-isotopes, has inhibited intimal thickening after overstretch balloon injury in experimental models. (ahajournals.org)
  • dilation
  • The first chamber of the inner balloon and the second chamber of the outer balloon define a variable dilation structure for dilating an anatomical stricture. (google.es)
