From access to closure, TE is a trusted partner to the world’s leading medical device companies providing interventional technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. An estimated 7M+ coronary stents are implanted annually – for the majority of these patients, a TE technology will play a critical role in the treatment of their heart disease.
In 1977 Dr. Andreas Gruntzig performed the world’s first coronary angioplasty, changing the future of cardiovascular medicine. With this new minimally invasive approach becoming the gold standard treatment for coronary disease, the industry called for high quality, reliable access and delivery devices to be produced at scale.
Partners from the beginning, TE Connectivity, together with Creganna Medical emerged as the world leading manufacturer of high-quality access and delivery devices at scale.
Manufacturing millions of proximal and catheter shafts each year, TE are acknowledged as the industry authority in the design and manufacturing of hypotube based catheter shafts. Offering our proprietary smartform balloon technology and a range of premium design features, TE can provide catheters with superior kink resistance, transition zone flexibility and optimized trackability.
