Presgo® Micro Guidewire received the NMPA registration certificate in February 2017 (Guo Xie Zhu Zhun 20173773091) and was subsequently commercialized in November 2017 in China.
Presgo® Micro Guidewire can be applied to cerebral blood vessels and peripheral blood vessels to help deliver diagnostic or therapeutic devices to a lesion. It can offer access and navigation in peripheral and cerebral procedures, such as catheterization and embolization.
Presgo® Micro Guidewire consists of a torque device and a tapered guidewire: 1) the nitinol material makes the guidewire more controllable and with better shape retention ability. 2) the outer layer of the tapered guidewire is a hydrophilic coating, which facilitates a smoother movement in the blood vessels. 3) with a five-centimeter long gold coil at the distal end of the guidewire, while the gold coil design allows radiopaque imaging and enhances the flexibility of the Presgo® Micro Guidewire so that it can navigate through different blood vessels.
