PTCA: A History
72 minutes (NTSC) -- $29.95
This video history of interventional cardiology presents the story of angioplasty: from its first use in the peripheral vessels by Charles Dotter in 1964, through skepticism and rejection in the U.S., its rebirth in Europe at the hands of Eberhart Zeitler and others, and its ultimate refinement for use in the coronaries by Andreas Gruentzig in 1977.

PTCA: A History documents a compelling and sometimes eccentric tale of personal vision and scientific innovation. Not long ago, the concept of placing a catheter down the coronary arteries was considered madness by most -- a time when the first balloon catheters were manufactured by hand on a kitchen table in Zurich.

You will glimpse the fear, excitement and triumph of the first PTCA, as told by the people who were in the room, including the first patient himself, Mr. Adolph Bachmann.

Finally the film tells of the building momentum and careful efforts to develop, shepherd and protect the integrity of this breakthrough technology, and explores the implications of this history in today's highly competitive healthcare climate.
