Radifocus® Glidewire Advantage™

Guide Wire

Description

Hybrid Technology For Outstanding Performance

Glidewire Advantage is dedicated to all peripheral intervention levels, from sheath placement to ilio-femoro-popliteal and below-the-knee treatments.
It combines maneuverability, crossability and device support to reach and cross the target lesion.

Characteristics

Superior Tactile Feedback1

  • Proximal spiral-cut PTFE structure enables a firm grip on guidewire shaft for steerability and comfortable handling

Best in Class Trackability2,3

  • Distal 25 cm of the original Radifocus Guide Wire M gives you the M CoatTM performance you trust

Improved Crossability1

  • More pushability and kink resistance with extra stiff proximal Nitinol shaft, even in complex lesions

Improved Platform for Interventional Devices1

  • Extra stiff Nitinol shaft provides additional device support
  • Proximal spiral PTFE coating limits surface contact within catheter lumen, reducing friction and improving trackability over the guidewire
