Rock on, Dad! World's longest angioplasty balloon

My father, Mike Badera, founder, president/CEO of Precision Extrusion, Inc. (site could use a refresh, I know ;) has, with the partners in his joint venture in Ireland, created the world's longest angioplasty balloon, at 340mm.

It's my understanding that until now, there was no stable process to produce a quality thin-wall balloon, or multiples of balloons, at this size. It's also my understanding that there aren't a lot of in-body applications for a 340mm angioplasty balloon, but that there exist previously unmet needs in the 200-250mm range.

Awesome! Glad to hear all that work in Ireland is paying off Dad!
