April 4, 2008 - At ACC, Terumo Interventional Systems took the opportunity to tout its Runthrough NS Coronary Guidewire, designed to provide tip durability, complete torque transfer and enhanced steerability.

Terumo launched the Runthrough NS in September 2007 in the U.S. market for use in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties (PTCA), as part of the company's strategy to expand its position in the coronary market.

According to the manufacturer, Runthrough NS has exceptional tip shape retention when compared to other coronary guidewires, as shown in head-to-head testing. The Runthrough NS reportedly gives physicians the ability to perform multi-vessel procedures with one wire.
