Guidewire Provides Torque, Flexibility for Coronary Procedures


April 22, 2010

Instead of using a conventional spring coil design, the Kinetix Guidewire uses a micro-cut nitinol sleeve and a nitinol distal core for improved torque control in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures.

It is meant to be a workhorse guidewire with good wire deliverability and support for device deployment. The wire builds on Boston Scientific’s Synchro Guidewires, used in neurovascular interventions. The design is supposed to provide better responsiveness and maneuverability.

The guidewire was released in April 2010.
