Vascular devices are medical devices and their accessories that are used in the arteries, veins or the heart itself, to control, diagnose, monitor, or correct disease, injury, or other conditions. This vasculature encompasses the cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, and neurovascular anatomy. These devices may be metallic or polymeric and may utilize animal tissues or be used in combination with medicinal substances.

Vascular access devices (VADs) are a type of vascular medical device that are inserted into veins through central or peripheral vessels for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. These include central venous pressure reading, blood sampling, total parenteral nutrition, administration of medicine and fluids, and blood transfusions.

Contract manufacturers play an important role in medical devices. Manufacturers can open new markets with a certified quality management system (QMS).
