Thomas J Fogarty: Piston extension balloon dilatation catheter apparatus and method. Naylor Neal & Uilkema, February 16, 1982: US04315512 (64 worldwide citation)

An elastomeric balloon is secured to one end of a catheter and stretched in order to reduce the balloon cross-section and facilitate its placement within an occluded section of a blood vessel. Stretching of the balloon is achieved by attaching the mouth of the balloon to the distal end of the cathet ...
