Access Product Solutions


We provide a full range of catheter technologies for the treatment of several disease states

  • MicroVention develops a full range of access products, including catheters and guidewires, that allow physicians to gain access to the treatment area. We strive to provide a wide range of innovative, high-quality access products designed to improve patient outcomes.

  • Our access product portfolio enables physicians to gain access to the brain through a minimally invasive treatment called endovascular therapy. An endovascular procedure requires a small incision made near the hip in order to access the blood vessels.  Once the blood vessels are accessed, a catheter is typically inserted through this small incision and guided to the location of the brain where treatment is necessary. From there, the physician will deliver the treatment directly to the specified location through the catheter. Endovascular procedures offer many advantages, including a shorter recovery period, less discomfort, a small incision, and fewer risks for patients that have other medical conditions.*

  • The majority of MicroVention's access products – guide catheters, intermediate catheters, microcatheters, balloon catheters, and guidewires – are specifically designed to work interchangeably across each of our product lines. In addition, we provide multiple-access product configurations that include a variety of length, flexibility, shape, inner and outer diameter, design, and material. Our focus is to provide ideal, integrated comprehensive solutions, easy-to-use products, and proven best practices to fulfill our customers’ needs from start to finish.

Access Technologies

Access products allow doctors to gain access to the treatment area

01 Guide Catheters

A catheter is a hollow, flexible tube inserted into a vessel to allow the passage of fluids or distend a passageway. Guide catheters are large, robust catheters that allow smaller catheters to pass through and facilitate the placement of various medical devices while providing stability during the procedure.

02 Intermediate Catheters

An intermediate catheter is designed to help provide stability by reducing the tendency of the microcatheter to move during delivery/implantation of medical devices.

03 Balloon Catheters

A balloon catheter is a type of soft catheter with an inflatable balloon at its tip. The deflated balloon catheter is positioned, inflated to perform the necessary procedure, and deflated again in order to be removed.

04 Microcatheters

A microcatheter is a small diameter catheter that can be tracked over a guidewire in order to reach the target lesion.

05 Guidewires

A guidewire is a thin, flexible wire that is used to enter small and tortuous vessels to act as a guide for subsequent insertion of a another instrument such as a microcatheter or balloon catheter.
