Vascular Solutions Offers Jiffy 0.035
Vascular Solutions' Jiffy Wire, an 80 cm 0.035-inch specialty guide wire, was launched in July 2008 and was featured at TCT 2008.
The Jiffy Wire offers the benefits of both a straight floppy tip and a 3 mm J-tip in one double-ended guide wire. The 80 cm working length and stiff shaft of the Jiffy Wire provides control and eases wire manipulation for access procedures, while the 10 cm graduated transition tips facilitate atraumatic access and device placement, the company said. The coils of the Jiffy Wire are pre-coated with a smooth PTFE coating.
