Micro guide catheters are used to get to increasingly difficult lesions in the human anatomy through the most complex ducts, vessels, or cavities. Used mostly in cardiovascular and neurovascular procedures, micro guide catheters can be flow-directed or over-the-wire. Micro guide catheters are designed with glide technology and have a hydrophilic coating in addition to a gold marker and a stainless steel braid. In recent years, companies across the industry have been developing advanced and intricately designed micro guide catheters to offer surgeons superior wire handling and support so as to be able to treat the most damaged lesions.

Global Micro Guide Catheters Market: Key Trends and Opportunities
Micro guide catheters offer their users a number of advantages over conventional catheters. These include better reliability and improved tensile strength. These benefits presented by the stainless steel braid in micro guide catheters are one of the most significant factors driving the global market. The flexibility of the tip of a micro guide catheter and enhanced guidewire control offered by the tapered catheter lumen also serve as key growth boosters.
Apart from this, there have been an increasing number of market players venturing into new product launches and increased research and development activities, thereby greatly supporting the market for micro guide catheters. The use of micro guide catheters in the field of cardiology has witnessed a recent surge owing to the soaring prevalence of cardiovascular diseases across the globe. The growing use of micro guide catheters in the treatment of conditions such as arterial embolism, vascular malformations, uterine fibroids, pulmonary or venal embolism, and hyper vascularized tumors has also significantly propelled the micro guide catheters market.
In contrast, risks associated with the material of the catheter and other functional issues pose a threat to the expansion of the micro guide catheters market.
