Market Report for Interventional Coronary Catheters 2018 - MedCore"

report has been added to's

Guiding catheters run over guidewires and are used at the beginning of
an interventional procedure. However, if a guiding catheter cannot cross
an occluded lesion, a more specialized device, such as a support
catheter, may be employed. Support catheters are able to cross all but
the most occluded lesions, although their success depends on the skill
and perseverance of the physician. Some lesions are too occluded even
for support catheters, and a physician will use a chronic total
occlusion (CTO) or atherectomy device in those situations. Usually,
lesions that are so occluded can be spotted via X-ray imaging prior to
the start of an interventional procedure.

Guiding catheters are used for conventional lesions where minimal
support is required, whereas support catheters are used for occluded
lesions where more rigidity and torque may be required to cross the
lesion. Support catheters are predominantly used for peripheral
procedures, and are seldom used for coronary procedures. Within the
coronary area, CTO devices are usually used for more occluded lesions,
lessening the demand for support catheters within this area.

For these reasons, only guiding catheters are included in this analysis.
