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 maintaining a larger inner-diameter equivalent. The sheath is designed to maximize procedural outcomes, supporting transradial intervention every day.
This kit contains sheath, dilator, plastic or spring mini guidewire, plastic IV catheter (entry needle) or a metallic entry needle.
