Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA)

Introduction to Surgery

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, in which a balloon inside the artery inflates at the site of a fatty clog to press it against the artery walls, allows the blood to flow again. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, stenting and atherectomy are minimally invasive (endovascular) procedures that restore blood flow when arteries are clogged due to peripheral artery disease.
