Chocolate PTCA is based on QT Vascular's Chocolate PTA balloon catheter and can be used for balloon dilatation of the stenotic portion of coronary artery or bypass graft stenosis in improving myocardial perfusion.

Stating that the device could prove to be an important tool in treating coronary heart disease, Columbia University Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy's Dr Martin Leon said, "Chocolate PTCA is an exciting new product for interventional cardiologists. It leverages the strong clinical outcomes and low rates of dissections of the Chocolate PTA Balloon Catheter (Chocolate PTA) while providing an important new tool that could be now used in coronary arteries."
