Two-in-one wire device combines access, safety guides
Cook Medical has introduced the Motion Hybrid Wire Guide, a two-in-one wire guide. The wire guide merges the strengths of a Teflon fixed core wire guide and a nitinol access wire guide into a single device. The device allows surgeons to simplify their procedures by reducing the number of wire guide exchanges during a procedure, according to Cook. The product also may help consolidate inventory in some cases because stocking a separate access wire guide and safety wire guide is no longer necessary. The core of the Motion Hybrid Wire Guide is nitinol, while the body of the wire guide is Teflon coated.
