Balloon Dilation Catheters

Balloon dilation catheters are useful in opening constrictions and applying radially expansive forces within anatomical structures. These devices are used in heart valves, coronary and peripheral arteries, and to cross the septum to provide transseptal access to the heart’s left chambers. Balloon dilation catheters are often used in neurovascular, renal, esophagus, urethra, sinus cavity, and other procedures. Applications include:
  • Angioplasty catheters
  • Arthrectomy catheters
  • Cryogenic catheters
  • Drug-delivery devices
  • Heat-transfer catheters
  • Laser balloon catheters
  • Photodynamic therapy devices
  • Positioning catheters
  • Stent-delivery catheters
DUKE Empirical has decades of experience in developing and manufacturing balloon dilation catheters. We supply balloon dilation catheters for all applications, and can provide RX (rapid exchange) or over-the-wire solutions for your more complex medical procedures.
 
We use a variety of materials in balloon dilation catheter manufacturing. The material is matched to the application based on the performance requirements and the material compliance (or elasticity) required. For example, PET is non-compliant (stiff), nylon and Pebax® are semi-compliant (somewhat elastic), and low durometer urethane is highly compliant (very elastic).
 
We can produce balloon dilation catheters capable of operating at pressures up to 30-plus atmospheres.
