September 3, 2009

The HI-TORQUE Versacore .035 Guide Wire is a peripheral guide wire is designed for routine diagnostic and device delivery for balloons and stents in peripheral vessels. Versacore features a soft, shapeable tip to provide safe access to peripheral lesions and enhanced visibility under fluoroscopy. Abbott said Versacore also offers excellent torque response, enabling the device to move consistently and easily around the bends of a patient's vascular system, even when accessing the hardest-to-reach lesions.

The Versacore guide wire is reportedly an ideal wire because it offers excellent support, navigates difficult anatomy easily, and saves time with device exchanges and simplifies the procedure.

The guide wire was released in the United States in May 2009.
