Parabolic Profile Allows for Ease of Access

Abbott Vascular’s HI-TORQUE WHISPER guidewire is designed to offer a higher level of support to facilitate device delivery. The smooth parabolic profile tracks around bends, reportedly allowing access to even the most distal tortuous lesions, and eliminates prolapse points and minimizes kinking.

The HI-TORQUE features high tensile strength core material, reportedly yielding favorable torque response and wire durability. The core-to-tip design aims for outstanding steering and torque control.
