    I am so sorry PCTA (SPELL CHECK). What does PCTA stand for?

    If we talk about cardiac it stands for angiolasty or in detail
    Percutaneous – performed through the skin
    Transluminal – through the inside opening of a vessel
    Coronary – relating to arteries or veins of the heart
    Angioplasty – a procedure to open blood vessels
    Hope that is what you needed

    Im sorry I should have been more specific. In the VA the supervisors are called PCTA's just wondering what it stands for.

    One thing you will find in the VA system is that they have different names for the same positions. PCTA was not one they used at my VA.
