Catheters, Vascular, Stent Delivery, Aorta
Definition : Vascular catheters designed for use during the insertion (i.e., delivery and deployment) of stents into the aorta, including the aortic arch. These devices typically consist of low-pressure balloon catheters available with several lumen diameters (e.g., 20 French) and lengths (usually from 40 to 240 mm/1.6 to 9.5 inches) that include a compliant section near the distal end appropriate for stent delivery and deployment. Dedicated catheters used to deliver stents intended to treat aorta (type A) dissections (typically during open surgery) and for treatment of lower aorta dissections (usually performed percutaneously through the vasculature) are available.
