A device for injecting medication into a vessel wall includes an inflatable balloon mounted on a catheter. Additionally, a plurality of tubular fluid passageways are longitudinally mounted on the balloon, and a plurality of injectors are mounted on each tubular passageway and in fluid communication therewith. During use of the device, the balloon is first positioned in a vessel. The balloon is then inflated to embed the injectors into the vessel wall. Next, a fluid medicament is introduced through each of the fluid passageways for further infusion through the passageways and through the injectors into the vessel wall.
