Market Report for Interventional Coronary Guidewires 2018 - MedCore"

report has been added to's

Interventional guidewires are manufactured in three distinct layers: the
first layer is called the shaft, which is usually made from stainless
steel; the second layer is the coil, which needs to be flexible and
resistant (for this reason the coil is usually made of platinum); and
the final layer is the coating, which is usually made of silicone or
another polymer in order to avoid puncturing the lumen, thus
facilitating the insertion of the device.

Manufacturers are continually improving the structure, design and
construction of guidewires. These improvements are creating more robust
and flexible devices, which are becoming popular amongst physicians,
particularly during interventions involving a chronic total occlusion

In addition, there is a shift towards the use of hydrophilic guidewires.
While hydrophilic guidewires are more expensive, they have more
flexibility and fluidity, making them useful in delicate procedures,
particularly in procedures where a CTO needs to be crossed.
