Short instructional movie of “INOUE BALLOON" CATHETER (IBC)

The “INOUE BALLOON" CATHETER (IBC) is the first non-surgical device for the treatment of mitral valve stenosis and is indicated for PTMC (Percutaneous Transvenous Mitral Commissurotomy) in patients with mitral valve stenosis primarily due to commissural fusion of the mitral valve leaflets.
The IBC is inserted percutaneously and transvenously into the heart to inflate the hourglass shape of the balloon section to dilate the commissural mitral valve.

This short instructional movie featuring the IBC has been produced, focusing on the safety, proper use, and troubleshooting. It is advisable for physicians to watch this video before performing an actual PTMC case so that the physician can clearly visualize and prepare for the actual case.
