Optimize Performance in Complex Anatomy
TWISTER™ Core Wire Technology is designed to optimize wire control in complex anatomy by providing a balance of support and kink-resistance.

A proprietary process stimulates micro lattice refinement of the core wire alloy to enable “hybrid” design characteristics. Product designs employing TWISTER™ Technology will benefit from the support of a stainless steel alloy and enhanced shape-resistance properties necessary to deliver superior torque control during even the most challenging cases.

Features & Benefits
Improves resistance to wire deformation without compromising wire support or pushability
Enhances torque control (steering) by reducing core twisting during torsional transfer
Reduces tip shape loss during the procedure
to facilitate vessel selection and reselection

Boost Torque Control
MICRORIDGE™ extends guidewire control to the fingertips of physicians.

Industry-exclusive stabilizing ridge minimizes twisting in the distal core flat providing superior torque control (20% more torque when compared to non-ridged designs).  Additionally, MICRORIDGE™ improves pushability by directing force to the distal tip minimizing tip prolapse.

Features & Benefits:
Delivers superior torque control (1:1 transmission) retention by minimizing twisting in the distal core flat
Improves guidewire delivery by minimizing tip prolapse and directing proximal “push” forces in the direction of the distal tip

Technology Profile

Material: Stainless Steel
Description: Stabilizing ridge extending from distal core taper into flat
Key Characteristics: Enhanced torque (20% increase), improved distal tracking

Improve Access to Highly Stenosed Lesions
Industry-exclusive WEDGE™ Tip Technology improves probing and crossing of highly-stenosed lesions.

Combine WEDGE™ Tip Technology with a MICRORIDGE™ Core Technology for additional support and pushability to maximize guidewire performance in the most extreme cases.

Features & Benefits:
Atraumatic rounded wedge shape reduces tip profile (.005”) and facilitates lesion probing
Distal support is maximized by its unique 90 degree orientation to the core ribbon

Material: Stainless Steel
Description:Tapered wedge tip oriented 90 degrees to core ribbon
Key Characteristics: Low profile (.005”) wedge tip profile enhances probing and crossing of highly-stenosed lesions

Enhance Side-Branch Access
DEFLECTOR™ Technology utilizes a unique core flat design to improve access to acutely angled, side branch vessels.

Designs employing this technology benefit from reduced tip prolapse and improved transmission of forces in the direction of the distal tip for improved tracking.

Features & Benefits:
Resists tip prolapse in parent vessel for controlled access to acutely angled side branches
Directs proximal “push” forces in the direction of the distal tip

Technology Profile

Material: Stainless Steel
Description: Core flat oriented in the same directional plane as J-shape
Key Characteristics: Reduced prolapse in main vessel, directs “push” forces in direction of distal tip
