Catheters are the tubes which are made from medical fine grade materials such as silicon rubber, plastic, nylon or PVC for multiple functions. Catheters are inserted into the patient’s body to diagnose the disease or perform surgical procedure to treat the disease. Medical procedures such as cardiac electrophysiology, angioplasty and neurosurgery require catheterization as primary co-procedure. Advanced technology catheter is a minimally invasive medical device that consists of braid reinforced tube, a thin walled and shaft with multiple durometers. Advanced technology catheters assist physicians to map the body systems and helps to ablate body tissue. These Advanced technology catheters enable the delivery and placement of other implantable devices such as heart valves, emboli, stents etc. Generally, advanced technology catheters are used in minimally invasive cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, and neurovascular procedures. Peripheral advanced technological catheters are generally larger than 6 French (Fr), cardiovascular advanced technology catheters are generally less than 6Fr, and neurovascular advanced technology catheters are as small as 2.3Fr depending on the specific application. Certain specific characters of catheters like pushability, trackability, torqueability, kink resistance are essential for success of the advance technology catheters.
Advanced Technology Catheters market is continue to witness significant growth owing to increased demand for newer technologies for various surgical procedures and growing demand for minimally invasive procedures and increased prevalence of life style disease such as diabetes and cardiovascular and diseases. Apart from this, demand for advance technology catheters are fuelled by increased incidence of kidney and urinary bladder failure that will help to bolster advanced technology catheters market over the forecast period. However, lack of skilled professionals to perform surgical procedures with advanced technology catheters, cost associated with the surgical procedures and, availability of inferior healthcare infrastructure in developing and under developed economies may hamper the growth of advanced technology catheters market over the forecast period.
