Wholey Guidewire

Peripheral Interventions

Overview

Navigate challenging cases with the Wholey™* guidewire system, available in different tip configurations, in different levels of support and flexibility, and in a variety of lengths. The device's proprietary precoating technology provides a consistent coating over the entire coil for a smoother interaction with interventional devices.


U.S. Indications

The Wholey guidewire system is intended to facilitate the placement and exchange of interventional devices during diagnostic or therapeutic interventional procedures. The guidewire can be torqued to facilitate navigation through tortuous arteries and/or avoid unwanted side branches.
