Catheters, Vascular, Perfusion, Coronary Artery

Definition : Perfusion vascular catheters designed for transmission of blood to the distal coronary bed. These catheters usually include a central lumen, a balloon near the catheter's tip, and side holes proximal to the balloon. Typically, blood enters the central lumen through the side holes due to native coronary (aortic) pressure and exits beyond the balloon into the distal coronary artery, bypassing the occlusion. These catheters are used for temporary perfusion of the coronary arteries to avoid myocardial infarction.
