(EN)The present invention relates to a balloon catheter comprising a shaft including a mainly tubular relatively rigid proximal shaft section and a distal shaft section, more flexible than the proximal shaft section, attached to a distal end portion of the proximal shaft section, and an inflatable balloon extending at a distal portion of the distal shaft section, and wherein a flexible transition member is attached to the distal end portion of the proximal shaft section extending into the distal shaft section. The balloon catheter is employed in the field of coronary angioplasty, particularly for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA).
