A cutting balloon is similar to the device used in conventional balloon angioplasty. The cutting device activates when the balloon inflates. The blades cut through plaque to open up blockages. The cutting balloon is particularly useful in hardened blockages that have narrowed. Your doctor may use this procedure with stents to open the blockage.
