In addition, technological advancement in this field and growing awareness has increased the growth of cardiovascular devices market. During the process of cardiac catheterization, guidewire is first inserted into the artery followed with catheter. Cardiac catheter refers to a thin tubular structure that is inserted into a chamber of the patient’s heart. Different types of cardiac catheters are used for treatment of different cardiac conditions. Various types of cardiac catheters are angiographic balloon catheters, bipolar pacing pins, hexapolar balloon pacing catheters, semi flotating electrodes, wedge pressure catheter, thermodilution infusion catheter and others. Guidewires refers to a thin flexible wire that is introduced in the body with the help of needle. They are named as guidewires as a result of their characteristics of guiding catheters. A guidewire is generally made of stainless steel.
Cardiac catheters and guidewires may be used for diagnostic or interventional purposes. Cardiac catheters and guidewires market is growing at a significant rate due to increase in the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and growing awareness for different cardiology devices available. In addition, government initiatives in the field and improvement in the healthcare facilities are increasing the market for cardiac catheters and guidewires.
