The World Market for Catheters (Cardiovascular, Urological, Intravenous and Specialty Devices)

Catheters make it possible to drain or inject fluids or enable access to the body by surgical instruments. In most instances, a catheter is a thin, flexible tube, though there is great diversity in catheter types and applications. This report provides descriptions of the types of catheters and estimates their market size and discusses the competitive activity in each category. Among the catheters used in urological applications are the Foley and the urethral catheters. Cardiovascular catheters find use in cardiac catheterization. This is a minimally invasive procedure in which a catheter is guided into the heart, usually through a blood vessel in the leg or arm. Once inside the heart, it can be used for diagnosing or treating a condition. Intravenous catheters are used if a person requires frequent or continuous injections of medications or fluids for nutritional support. A wound drain catheter is inserted while a patient is in the operating room receiving general anesthesia. The purpose of the drain is to remove fluid or blood from the surgical site. This helps the healing process.
