Guide Wire Provides Support, Selective Deep Intubation in Challenging Cases

 

March 24, 2010

The GuideLiner catheter is a coaxial “mother and child” guide extension using a rapid exchange system that provides back-up support and selective deep intubation in challenging coronary interventions. The catheter is available in 6, 7 and 8 French sizes.

Deep intubation of the Guideliner catheter within a soft 6 French guide provides better backup support and is less traumatic than using stiff 7 and 8 French guides that were previously required in complex disease. The soft and very flexible tip will often cross tortuous disease where a stent gets stuck, enabling delivery of stents and other equipment directly to the target lesion.

The product received FDA clearance in November 2009. It received CE mark in October 2009.
