Medical catheters are used in healthcare to deliver medications or to drain bodily fluids. They can be inserted into a body cavity, duct or blood vessel. Catheters play an important role in minimal invasive surgeries and are used in the diagnostic, monitoring or operational purpose during surgery procedures. For instance, cardiac catheterization is an invasive imaging procedure that tests for heart diseases and functions. A contrast dye is injected through the catheter so that x-ray images of valves, coronary arteries and heart chambers can be created. Patient’s preferences have drastically shifted in the past few years, from traditional methods on medical interventions to minimal invasive surgeries.
Increasing prevalence of neurovascular disorders such as duralarteriovenous, aneurysm, arteriovenous and chronic kidney diseases have increased the demand for catheters. However, healthcare associated infections caused by catheters can limit the growth of market. Moreover, high cost of neurological and cardiac procedures and lack of skilled professionals can hinder the growth of the market. New innovations and technological advancements would help to cover come the limitations. Increasing prevalence of diabetes, obesity, urinary diseases and cardiovascular diseases boost the growing demand for catheters globally.
