Transradial access offers many advantages over the traditional femoral approach, including the potential for less pain, fewer complications, faster recovery times, and better clinical outcomes.1
The TERUMO 1.5 mm GLIDEWIRE® Baby-J™ Hydrophilic Coated Guidewire combines the leading performance of the GLIDEWIRE® Guidewire product portfolio with design features ideal for transradial access:
- Enables small vessel access
Tight J-Tip shape and superior lubricity retention2-4* designed to minimize slide resistance allows for smooth and uninterrupted wire tracking through the small radial and subclavian arteries.
- Tracks through tortuous anatomy
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.
- Tracking through radial artery
1.5mm J-Tip can track through radial artery with average diameter of 1.9 mm - 2.3 mm5
