Cecile Redington, a product engineer with the company, shared her thoughts. “Polymer solution casting is a very versatile technology and lends itself well to many catheter designs, since it offers the flexibility of easily varying the material stiffness along the length of the catheter, as well as creating as a single-piece and seamless design.  By using conventional extrusions to create a complex catheter design, the manufacturing process will require several different extrusions to be bonded together to achieve transitions in stiffness, while the same can be much more easily achieved by modifying the layering order and location of different types of polymers…
