Terumo Medical of Somerset, NJ is continuing its push to develop better technologies for easier transradial cardiac catheterizations by releasing a new Glidesheath Nitinol access kit, designed for double or single-wall radial sticks:
The new all-in-one Glidesheath Nitinol Kit expands the product family portfolio and is available with unique features such as a new .021” nitinol floppy palladium-tipped wire and a 21 gauge metal needle. Unlike competitive kits that do not have a hydrophilic sheath , each Glidesheath Nitinol Kit includes everything the operator will need in one complete, convenient package.
Glidesheath Hydrophilic Coated Introducer Sheaths offer the full-length Terumo Glide Technology™ coating to ensure smooth, atraumatic insertion and removal even in the most difficult procedures. The Glidesheath’s unique design provides optimal flexibility for kink resistance to ensure an open lumen throughout the procedure, while the cross-cut valve allows for easy insertion of catheters and devices, while offering uncompromised hemostasis.
