Papadantonaki, Stotts, and Paul (1994) noted percutaneous transluminal
coronary angioplasty is a less invasive procedure.
1-3], BTK patients treated with Chocolate percutaneous transluminal
angioplasty ("PTA") Balloon Catheter ("Chocolate PTA") in this study showed a lower rate of unplanned stenting, a lower rate of repeat interventions, a lower incidence of amputation and lower overall mortality.
