Brachytherapy Applicators, Automated, Intravascular

Definition : Automated brachytherapy applicators designed to deliver a therapeutic radiactive source (e.g., metallic wire, liquid container), retrieve it from, and/or hold it in a predetermined area inside a vessel and/or a stent previously inserted into the vessel. These applicators usually include a double-lumen catheter that locates the radioactive source; they are connected to, or are an integral part of, an intravascular automated brachytherapy system. Intravascular automated brachytherapy applicators are intended to prevent and/or treat restenosis in arteries and/or vascular stents.
