Nipro Medical Corp. Launches AquaLiner II Nitinol Guidewire in the U.S.

Hydrophilic, super-elastic second-generation guidewire provides control needed to navigate complex lesions

February 19, 2016 — Nipro North America announced the launch of the AquaLiner II second-generation 0.035-inch, hydrophilic, super-elastic nitinol guidewire. The guidewire enables the operator to navigate through complex lesions and deliver interventional devices such as balloons and stents.

AquaLiner II's improved, kink-resistant nitinol core provides the control needed to navigate the vasculature by absorbing strain and maintaining strength. The super-elasticity of the device’s core wire conforms to the patient's vasculature and provides excellent support for interventional devices.

The guidewire's hydrophilic coating delivers the durability required to maintain lubricity throughout the procedure even through multiple passes. AquaLiner II also delivers ienhanced tactile feel, pushability and trackability, even in the most challenging anatomy.

The chemically-engineered tip delivers a smooth, atraumatic insertion and navigation through vessels. Minimal force is required, allowing for better steerability and control. The tapered tip also provides optimal stability, while still maintaining a flexible soft taper.

AquaLiner II is available in various lengths, ranging from 150cm to 260cm, with a regular or stiff-configured wire and with a straight or angled tip.
