RADIFOCUS™ Guide Wire M Baby-J™ ( 1.5 mm J-Tip )
The 1.5mm J-Tip wire’s compact size and tip shape is designed to enable physicians to navigate tortuous vessels, which may help to minimize risk of trauma, vasospasm, and procedural interruptions.
RADIFOCUS™ Guide Wire M Baby-J™ ( 1.5 mm J-Tip ) combines the leading performance of the RADIFOCUS™ Guide Wire M product portfolio with design features ideal for transradial access.
The 1.5 mm J-Tip wire’s compact size and tip shape is designed to enable physicians to navigate tortuous vessels, which may help to minimize risk of trauma, vasospasm, and procedural interruptions.
Enables small vessel access
- Tight J-Tip shape and superior lubricity retention,2-4 designed to minimize slide resistance, allows for smooth and uninterrupted wire tracking through the small radial and subclavian arteries.
Tracks through tortuous anatomy
- The nitinol alloy core resists kinking in tortuous anatomy, allowing for easier and faster tracking.
Avoids radial artery side branches
- The J-Tip wire is designed to avoid side branches of the radial artery and to minimize the potential risk of perforation and other complications.
