Research, Design, and Technology


  1. 1.

    Force applied to the tubular organ walls in the place of contact with the flexible rotating shaft of the dilatation catheter is normal to the wall surface and does not exceed physiological value (except for very stiff walls).

  2. 2.

    Power consumption measurement allows estimation of only tangential forces.

  3. 3.

    Vibromechanical dilatation is a promising technique for treating stenoses of tubular organs.
