A needle catheter for scraping or thrombosing vascular walls has a sleeve mounted fast to a needle. The sleeve has a recess in which an inflatable balloon is mounted. The balloon may be selectively inflated and deflated by means of an extra-corporeal syringe. The balloon carries a plurality of abrasive burrs or ribs on the outer surface.
