GLIDESHEATH SLENDER® Hydrophilic Coated Introducer Sheath

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

RADIAL ACCESS WITHOUT COMPROMISE1

The Glidesheath Slender Sheath is designed with a thin wall structure where the outside diameter is reduced by one French size while the inner-diameter equivalent is maintained.

The Glidesheath Slender Sheath is coated with Terumo’s proprietary Glide Technology™ hydrophilic coating, allowing for smooth insertion and removal.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

BEST IN CLASS HYDROPHILIC COATING & TAPERED TIP DESIGN3

Per the American Heart Association, dedicated radial sheaths with hydrophilic coating combined with smaller diameter sheaths and a tapered tip design may reduce risk of arterial spasm and radial occlusion2

Featuring Terumo’s Glide Technology™, the Glidesheath Slender Sheath is the only thin wall radial sheath on the market to demonstrate superior and consistent performance in lubricity and lubricity durability over time3

The Glidesheath Slender Sheath is the only thin wall sheath that demonstrated best in class performance in all of the American Heart Association’s identified critical features that lead to reduced spasm4

THIN WALL TECHNOLOGY

The thin wall technology featured on the Glidesheath Slender Sheath is designed to facilitate atraumatic radial access while maintaining an optimal sheath-to-artery ratio

Allows physicians to perform diagnostic and interventional procedures without upsizing to a larger sheath

UNMATCHED CLINICAL EVIDENCE6

A meta-analysis of 10 clinical papers, involving 3,821 patients, demonstrated that use of Glidesheath Slender Sheath is associated with high rates of procedural success and low rates in performance related issues

In studies measuring patient comfort, patients who underwent percutaneous transradial procedures with the Glidesheath Slender Sheath reported none to low amounts of pain

THE MARKET LEADER IN RADIAL ACCESS7

In recent market research, the Glidesheath Slender Introducer Sheath was identified as the most recognized, most influential, most utilized and most trusted radial access sheath in the market
