Terumo Launches Glidewire Advantage Peripheral Guidewire

September 11, 2009 – Terumo Interventional Systems yesterday launched its Glidewire Advantage Peripheral Guidewire, a single wire that enables the operator to both cross the lesion and deliver interventional devices such as balloons and stents.

The guide wire combines Terumo’s Glidewire construction on the distal 25 cm with a unique spiral PTFE coating on the proximal end. The result is a guide wire that easily navigates and crosses the lesion, while also providing the operator with excellent tactile feel and support for secure device placement. These two wire sections are seamlessly fused together using Terumo’s proprietary DuoCore Technology.

“On selected cases, this may be the only wire we use,” said Vikram S. Kashyap, M.D., associate professor of surgery, department of vascular surgery, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. “Thus, access, sheath placement and intervention can be performed using this and negating two or three other wire choices.”
