Deflectable catheters are steerable catheters delivery systems that provide assistance to guide catheters, therapeutic devices, stent delivery systems, or other delivery systems into the target location, and are used in navigation of defective or stressed anatomy. Deflectable catheters are widely adopted in applications such as ultrasound imaging, general imaging, electrophysiology therapy, site-specific radiation, mitral valve repair, stent delivery systems, and steerable balloon systems. Deflectable catheters are used to access anatomical structures during diagnosis and treatment, biopsy, and others procedures. Deflectable catheters are available in many conformations such as uni-directional, bi-directional, multi-directional deflectable catheters. Uni-directional deflectable catheters are equipped with a tip at the top that can be pulled into a defined curve. This is done by using a wire attached to the tip. Uni-directional deflectable catheters are adopted in applications where a high degree of angulated turn is required. Bi-directional deflectable catheters are equipped with a tip that can be pulled into two opposite positions and are adopted in applications which requires controlled movement and placement of distal tip, example includes electrophysiology mapping and ablation catheters. 4-way deflectable catheters can be pulled in four directions, and are adopted in the application which requires images from different angles, examples include ultrasound mapping systems. Omnidirectional deflectable catheters are 4-way catheters which are guided by robotic systems, and are adopted in variety of application and offers physician low probability of radiation exposure.
