Got a challenging delivery problem? Catheters, laparoscopes, endoscopes, intramedullary access, and other delivery systems have to perform the near-impossible with impeccable reliability. Laser-cut shafts are meeting the performance and cost challenges across the spectrum -- fine hypotubes to large-bore -- while carrying a myriad of payloads. The design constraints can mean trouble, but the degrees of design freedom can mean business. Sort out the opportunities from the pitfalls: optimize materials, pattern selection, pattern design process, and the interface with other components.
