Balloon Dilation Catheters
Balloon dilation catheters are flexible catheters attached to a catheter shaft with a short distal circumferential balloon at the tip. They are used to widen stenotic blood vessels and heart valves. Features include the rapid exchange platform for use in the peripheral vasculature, a low balloon profile and a laser-bonded, tapered tip to promote crossability through tight stenoses, and flexible, lubricious inner shafts (and tips) to promote easier navigation through tortuous vasculature.
Accellent's technical expertise in processes such as polymer processing, thermo bonding, laser balloon bonding and hydrophilic coating combine for superior balloon catheter design.
