Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) refers to a minimally-invasive procedure for opening blocked or narrowed coronary arteries caused by coronary arteries disease (CAD). PTCA balloon catheters help to allow the blood to flow from the arteries to the heart muscles without the need for open heart surgery. Coronary heart disease is caused by smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, and a high level of cholesterol in the blood. Some of the symptoms of coronary heart disease are chest pain, sweating, difficulty in breathing, dyspnea, and excessive fatigue. Rise in aging population, technological advancements, and introduction of innovative products are some of the major factors driving the growth of the PTCA balloon catheter market.
On the basis of application, the PTCA balloon catheter market can be segmented into normal balloon catheter, drug eluting balloon catheter, cutting balloon catheter, and scoring balloon catheter. On the basis of product, the PTCA balloon catheter market can be segmented into balloon angioplasty catheters, guiding catheters, guidewires, inflation devices, introducers/sheath, and vascular access site closure devices. PTCA balloon catheters are easy-to-use, safe, and relatively-low priced. Guiding Catheters are used to indicate the delivery of interventional devices to peripheral or coronary vascular systems. The main advantage of PTCA is the avoidance of immediate post-operative discomforts associated with coronary bypass surgeries and reduction of morbidity by use of this procedure.
