Summary: Cutting Balloon
Catheter Market Forecast, Trend Analysis & Competition Tracking: Global Review 2017 to 2022
[USPRwire, Tue May 21 2019] Adoption of cutting balloon
catheter is expected to remain sluggish during the forecast period.
This study aimed to evaluate the acute- and long-term outcomes of rotational atherectomy (RA) followed by cutting balloon
(CB) versus plain balloon before drug-eluting stent implantation for calcified coronary lesions.
versus conventional balloon angioplasty in short femoropopliteal arterial stenoses.

Herein, we present a case of a flow-limiting intramural coronary haematoma following PCI that was successfully treated with microfenestrations of the intima layer, utilising a cutting balloon
If restenosis occurs, treatment options include balloon angioplasty, which pushes the scar tissue against the artery walls, cutting balloon
angioplasty, which can cut out scar tissue with small blades, and placing a new stent inside the previous stent.
The available treatment options for recurrent RAS are percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and/or placement of a second stent, use of polytetrafluoroet hylene- (PTFE-) covered stents, cutting balloon
angioplasty, endovascular brachytherapy, excimer laser-assisted angioplasty, and surgical atherectomy [5, 6].
In this study, we aimed to investigate the angiographic recurrent stent restenosis rate at 6-12 months after successful cutting balloon
angioplasty (CBA) for the bare metal stent restenosis.
