Catheters, Vascular, Embolectomy/Thrombectomy, Balloon

Definition : Vascular catheters designed to perform embolectomy/thrombectomy procedures using an inflatable balloon at their distal tips. They are introduced into a vessel (i.e., artery, vein) and passed as far as possible through the embolus and/or thrombus; the balloon is inflated and then withdrawn, bringing out the clot with it. Balloon embolectomy/thrombectomy catheters typically consist of a 2 to 7 French single-lumen silicone tube with a rounded distal tip that incorporates the balloon; some catheters include a second lumen for drug (e.g., heparin, dye) injection proximal to the balloon.
