Diagnostic Wires

The access wire is designed to overcome standard clinical challenges providing necessary support to introduce the sheath and catheters. The wire is usually made of stainless steel or nitinol along with PTFE coated or polymer jacket cover.

A Glidewire with hydrophilic coating is mostly used to navigate through tortuous lesions while extra support wires are useful to deliver the sheath especially in tortuous and angulated vessels.
