Biotronik Launches New Guidewire Range

The Galeo Pro is designed for both the simple and the most challenging procedures

July 30, 2013 — Biotronik has launched its next generation of guidewires. Galeo Pro has a high tensile stainless steel core, increased durability and excellent shape retention. These allow the physician to treat multiple lesions with one wire, thus increasing safety and saving procedure time. This new generation of the classic Galeo guidewire inherits outstanding torque and trackability from previous models.

"Successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) starts with a good guidewire that you can rely on. A guidewire is certainly one of the most important tools for the physician and in many cases determines the success of the procedure”, said Dr. hab. med. Krzysztof Reczuch from the 4th Military Clinical Hospital in Wroclaw, Poland. “Galeo Pro provides excellent characteristics for both simple and challenging procedures. It delivers outstanding support, torque and lubricity for easy passage through complex anatomies, as well as enabling the smooth delivery of devices.”

Galeo Pro will be available with varying tip flexibility, shape, length and support, making it a true workhorse guidewire, suitable for the most simple to the most challenging clinical cases.
