Catheters and Stents

Stent implants are becoming more and more common in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The stent is pushed through the artery just past the narrow passage with the help of a guide wire and a catheter and is then released. This stent is a thin mesh tube. It is cut from a tube by a laser or woven out of wire. Catheters are used for minimally invasive surgical procedures. Their use and functionality continues to grow, requiring complex component testing.
