Functional description

High-Torque Jet Guide wire with a diameter of 0.0145'' is provided in 190cm extendable, 250cm and

300cm exchange lengths. The distal core has a parabolic grind to reduce core diameter and stiffness for

flexibility and performance. The distal 28 cm portion of the wire is has a hydrophilic coating and

polyurethane coating loaded with tungsten to provide additional radiopacity. The proximal core is coated

with PTFE and a single coat of Microglide, and contains brachial and femoral markers.

Intended purpose

This HI-TORQUE guide wire is intended to facilitate the delivery of catheter-based interventional devices

during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). This guide wire may also be used with

compatible stent devices during therapeutic procedures.

The guide wire may also be used to reach and cross a target lesion, provide a pathway within the vessel

structure, facilitate the substitution of one diagnostic or interventional device for another, and to distinguish

the vasculature.
