Guide Wire Features Enhanced Steering, Handling, Tracking Ability

The ZIPwire Hydrophilic Guide Wire features a number of elements designed to enhance the ability to steer, handle and track the device.
The wire's coating supports smooth exchanges with other devices and is designed to support crossing of difficult lesions. A flexible and refined tip is designed to allow physicians to maneuver through tortuous blood vessels and facilitates smooth catheter advancement and precise positioning. A robust nitinol core resists kinking and transmits rotation along the length of the device (torque transmission), which improves maneuverability.
The ZIPwire Guide Wire is available in stiff and standard versions and in various lengths, diameters and tip shapes.
