Catheters, Vascular, Guiding

Definition : Vascular catheters designed to facilitate intravascular access through their lumen to specific vessels (e.g., iliac, carotid, and coronary arteries). These catheters (also known as guiding sheaths) usually consist of a single-lumen tube with an appropriate configuration, stiffness, and tip to access a particular section of the vasculature. Guiding vascular catheters are used to insert other catheters, guide wires, balloons, occlusion devices, and stents, while performing intravascular catheterization procedures (e.g., angioplasty, atherectomy). Dedicated vascular guiding catheters are also used in a variety of intravascular (e.g., peripheral, central venous) introducers and catheterization procedure kits and trays.
