Drug coated balloon catheters for minimally invasive surgery
Hemoteq, a company of Freudenberg Medical, produces more than 1,000 drug coated balloon catheters every day. Surgeons use the thin catheters to reach critical constrictions in blood vessels, which they gently dilate with the help of the inflatable balloon. At the same time, its surface delivers an active ingredient. Its special crystal geometry ensures that the drug penetrates deep into the vessel wall. There, the crystals act as a depot. The active ingredient released from them - in the right quantity at the right time - supports the healing process of the blood vessel over several months.
