Glidesheath Slender® - Transradial introducer sheath

Expanding transradial access to include more patients

Glidesheath Slender offers the smallest option for procedures requiring 5, 6 and 7 Fr sheaths.1 The proprietary thin-wall technology reduces the outside diameter of the introducer sheath by 1 Fr while maintening a larger inner-diameter equivalent. The sheath is designed to maximize procedural outcomes, supporting transradial intervention every day.

Characteristics

  • Perform diagnostic and interventional procedures without upsizing to a larger sheath
  • Provide easy radial access, especially in women with smaller radial arteries1, 2
  • Result in less penetration resistance than conventional sheaths2, 3
  • Ultra-thin wall leading to a 1 Fr reduction in outer diameter
  • A smaller diameter sheath reduces the arteriotomy size, to enhance post-procedure haemostasis2
  • Easy insertion and removal with proprietary Terumo M Coat hydrophilic coating
  • Designed towards minimizing mechanical irritation to the artery

Item Specifications
