New Coronary Guide Wire Enters U.S. Market

Terumo Interventional Systems recently released its Runthrough NS Coronary Guidewire in the U.S. market for use in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties (PTCA), as the company expands its position in the coronary market.

Runthrough NS is designed to provide tip durability, complete torque transfer and enhanced steerability. According to the manufacturer, Runthrough NS has exceptional tip shape retention when compared to other coronary guide wires, as shown in head-to-head testing. The Runthrough NS reportedly gives physicians the ability to perform multivessel procedures with one wire.
