Conference paper


In a visionary paper in 1964 Dotter and Judkins [1] first described percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, and predicted that the technique would be applicable to proximal segments of the renal and coronary arteries. History proved them correct. The development of the double-lumen balloon dilating catheter by Grüntzig and Hopff [3] in 1974 has made renal and coronary artery dilatation not only possible but an accomplished fact; since the late 1970s many centers all over the world have performed at least a thousand and possibly several thousand such procedures [4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14].
