Guidewires

Guidewires are used to navigate vessels to reach particular areas of the body. Once the tip of the device arrives at its destination, it acts as a "guide" for larger catheters for easier delivery of devices or medications to a treatment site.

Guidewires are used to navigate vessels to reach particular areas of the body. Once the tip of the device arrives at its destination, it acts as a "guide" for larger catheters for easier delivery of devices or medications to a treatment site.

Guidewires usually have a floppy tip and stiff body to enable easy navigation. They are typically made of stainless steel or nitinol which helps to increase flexibility and allows the wire to spring back into shape after navigating the vessel segment. Some wires are coated with polymers to reduce friction during deployment.

Wires are usually between 0.014 and 0.038 inches in diameter and 80 to 450 cm long.
