Both devices treat periphery artery disease, with the Amphirion Plus PTA indicated for treatment of narrowed or blocked leg arteries below the knee and the IN.PACT Amphirion drug-eluting balloon used to treat critical limb ischemia, a more serious form of PAD, according to a Medtronic press release.
