CORONARY GUIDE WIRE
Indicated for PTCA applications The secret of Galeo's unique "fingertip feeling” is the combination of unique controlled transmission platform (CTP),one-piece construction of the full-length core wire and hydrophobic distal coating.
- Hydrophobic coating for an optimal tactile feel
- Enhanced torque response for precise steerability
- Broad selection of tip stiffnesses and support levels
Optimal Tactile Feel
Hydrophobic coating over the entire coiled section of the guide wire enhances the tactile feel. This makes it the preferred choice for situations where a more stable feel inside the vessel is required.
Different tip stiffnesses and support levels offer a broad guide wire range for various clinical needs.
Enhanced Torque Response
One-piece construction core wire provides optimal torque response. The Controlled Transmission Platform helps keep the core wire centered within the coil while navigating tortuous anatomy. This combination improves torque response and provides precise steerability.
Controlled Transmission Platform (CTP)
The direct connection between the core wire and the distal coil.
Galeo EW (Extension Wire)
The Galeo EW provides a fast and reliable method for extending the Galeo and Galeo Pro guide wire for a further 150 cm. The guide wire and extension wire can easily be pulled apart to revert to the original guide wire length.
