Here’s how laser-cut tube (LCT) catheters compare to traditional catheters: the design process, functional advantages, test methods and cost comparisons.
The medical device community has a long history of using braided and coil-based catheter constructs. But these traditional constructs present multiple performance-based issues. “With the advent of the laser-cut tube capability we have at Resonetics, it’s opened up a lot of options for catheter manufacturing,” said Dave Rezac, VP of design and development services at the company, in a recent DeviceTalks Tuesdays webinar.
Kevin Hartke, Resonetics’ chief technical officer, joined Rezac in the Resonetics-sponsored webinar to discuss how their company studied the comparative performance of LCT versus traditional catheter constructs.
