Catheters, Vascular, Microflow
Definition : Vascular catheters designed for catheterization of small-lumen (typically less than 1 mm) vasculature. These catheters typically consist of 1.5 or 1.8 Fr, soft, usually elastic tubes that are typically flow-directed into the vasculature; some of these catheters are directed using a very thin (e.g., 0.25 mm diameter) hydrophilic wire that does not extend beyond the tip of the catheter. Microflow vascular catheters are mostly used for endovascular treatment of vascular lesions of the central nervous system, such as aneurysms, cerebral arteriovenous malformations, tumors, and fistulas.
