Catheters, Vascular, Angiography
Definition : Vascular catheters designed to inject contrast media into main and/or branch vessels in the cerebral, visceral, or peripheral vasculature. These catheters are available in a multitude of tip configurations, from the single-end-hole straight tip to the pigtail, including numerous side holes. Most of these catheters include tip configurations intended to facilitate selective catheter entry into the branch vessels (e.g., visceral, peripheral, cerebral). Angiographic vascular catheters are manufactured from a variety of materials (e.g., polyurethane, polyethylene) and usually incorporate radioopaque fillers or markers.
