Therapeutic catheters

Therapeutic catheters are medical devices that are inserted into the body through a small incision to perform minimally invasive surgery, diagnostic tests, or deliver medications.

A common component of these catheters is an expandable element on the distal end that can be covered or coated in a polymer material to make the catheter more effective. Some applications for therapeutic catheters with expandable elements are angioplasty procedures to prevent embolisms, thrombectomy procedures to remove blood clots.
