Introduction to the Properties and Materials of Catheters

1. Catheters are constantly developing


With the development of catheter diagnosis and treatment technology, the clinical application of catheters is developing day by day, and the demand is also increasing. According to incomplete statistics, there are currently more than 120 types of catheters used in urology in the world alone, and there are more than 100 catheters used for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, tumor and other diseases.


2. Introduction of catheter properties and materials


There are many kinds of catheter materials, and there are more than dozens of organic polymer materials used in medical plastic products, and they are used in products for different purposes with their different properties. Biomedical materials refer to materials with special properties and special functions that are used in medical and health care fields such as human organs, surgical repair, physical therapy rehabilitation, diagnosis, examination and treatment of diseases, and do not cause adverse effects on human tissues and blood. Medical catheter plastic is a synthetic polymer material with certain biocompatibility.


From the history of catheter manufacturing, almost all materials that can be used to make tubular products have been used by catheter companies. These materials include: silicone rubber, polyurethane and its block copolymers, polytetrafluoroethylene, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polymethylmethacrylate, polyurethane, polyethylene terephthalate, nylon , ABS and polycarbonate.
