The Amplatz Support Wire Guide is now available in a unique tip configuration. Physician interest has created a demand for the supportive, curiously curved APEX wire guide.
The APEX double curve is composed of a tight 2 mm J that is bent over itself into a larger 8 mm J-tip, which creates a wide, soft anchor for gaining purchase in large vascular spaces. This wire guide is 260 cm long and has the shaft of an Amplatz Extra-Stiff Wire Guide, which provides a super-supportive rail for the delivery of devices over curves in the vasculature and into hard-to-reach cavities where control and accuracy are required. This wire guide will be useful for challenging device-insertion cases.
The part number is THSCF-35-260-APEX-1 (G04421) and product information can be found here.
