Interventional Catheter Shaft Performance Analysis

Download the Guide

This free whitepaper from Resonetics provides a detailed technical evaluation of braiding compared to laser cut tube for reinforcement in interventional catheter shafts. A series of test results are shared that compare functional performance of the components related to:

  • Torque Transfer
  • Kink Resistance / Ovality
  • Tensile & Compressive Strength

By comparing shaft segments made with a representative array of laser cut tube (LCT) patterns and sizes to commercially available benchmarks, this whitepaper outlines key differences between the two reinforcement methods. The conclusions shared provide the reader with a better understanding of available design options and how they can affect the performance of their finished medical device.
