Because ERCP cases can range from routine to challenging, Cook Medical discovered that what many GI clinicians really need is a simple, reliable wire guide they can use for all of their procedures. “We asked and listened carefully to what doctors and nurses around the world told us they wanted in a wire guide,” said John Curran, Product Manager for Cook Medical’s Endoscopy division. “What we heard over and over again was their desire for a wire that delivered consistent, versatile performance in the wide variety of situations they encounter every day. They said they wanted a dependable, ‘everyday’ wire guide. That feedback led us to the development of the Acrobat 2 Calibrated Tip Wire Guide.”
Balancing pushability and flexibility
The Acrobat 2 provides the essential combination of tip flexibility and overall pushability for smooth ductal access and navigation. The calibrated platinum spring-coil tip demonstrates at least 35% greater flexibility than its eight major competitors1 and features a hydrophilic coating that reduces friction, improving trackability for negotiating challenging anatomy. And, the 0.035-inch Acrobat 2 has 29% greater pushability than the original 0.035-inch Acrobat wire guide.
Built to deliver positive outcomes
All the features of Acrobat 2 were designed to meet the needs of the clinician—from its flexible, spring-coil tip and enhanced pushability to its 1:1 torqueability and availability with either a straight or angled tip. To monitor wire guide position and movement, the Mark V System® provides high-contrast visualization of movement and depth of insertion. It all adds up to providing the right kind of wire guide access that can help clinicians in their goal to deliver positive outcomes to their patients every day.
