PTA guide wires

PTA guide wires are critical tools in the treatment of peripheral artery disease. These slender and flexible wires serve as the initial navigational pathway through the peripheral arteries, leading the way for the delivery of other devices such as balloons and stents. Once inserted through a guide catheter, the guide wire is carefully manoeuvred through the peripheral arteries, crossing the lesion or blockage.

There are several characteristics of the wires, such as tip load, coating type and flexibility, which are tailored for specific clinical need, allowing the wire to traverse through vessels and lesions while minimising the risk of damaging the vessel walls.
