CODMAN LAUNCHES NEW STEERABLE NEUROVASCULAR GUIDEWIRE AT AANS
“The control and versatility of the NEUROSCOUT 14 Guidewire is excellent and navigates delicate anatomy with ease,” said Adnan H. Siddiqui, MD, PhD and Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery & Radiology at SUNY’s University of Buffalo in Buffalo, NY. “The combination of features represents an advance in guidewire technology.”
The NEUROSCOUT 14 Guidewire features a uniquely designed, flattened distal segment with a stainless steel core that retains its shape over time, enabling easy vessel access and re-access. A technologically enhanced surface with a highly lubricous surface coating reduces frictional forces with compatible devices and a 10cm platinum distal coil section provides increased visualization under fluoroscopy.2 Exclusive core wire technology is designed to deliver precise torque transmission, excellent tip control and pushability. The NEUROSCOUT 14 guidewire measures .014 inches in diameter and is available in standard and soft versions with usable lengths of 205 and 300 cm.
