Two hugging balloons at high pressures successfully dilate a lesion refractory to routine coronary angioplasty.


A small portion of lesions are refractory to coronary angioplasty even when very high pressures are used. This leads to a failed angioplasty and emergent bypass surgery. We successfully attempted the technique of hugging balloons or two polyethelene terephthalate (PET) balloons inflated simultaneously side by side which successfully dilated a lesion which… (More)
