Abstract

The present invention discloses the incorporation of thermoplastic polyimide into various parts of balloon catheters such as catheter shafts and balloons. Such catheter construction may be integral or unitary in which the shaft or a portion thereof and balloon are manufactured as a single unit or the construction may be comprised of a separate shaft to which a balloon is attached, as by adhesive or other bonding.
