Interventional guidewires are often the first type of device to cross an arterial lesion. For this reason, the choice of guidewire is extremely important in order for a procedure to be successful. Interventional guidewires used for coronary applications can be classified into two general types: conventional and specialty guidewires.
Coronary diagnostic screenings, or angiography procedures, utilize X-ray images for the visualization of arteries and chambers of the heart. A contrast agent is inserted into the patient’s veins in order to screen and monitor blood flow during a procedure. The contrast agent travels through the patient’s body via a diagnostic catheter, whose placement at the opening of the coronary arteries is facilitated through the aid of a guidewire.
Interventional guidewires are often the first type of device to cross an arterial lesion. For this reason, the choice of guidewire is extremely important in order for a procedure to be successful. Interventional guidewires used for coronary applications can be classified into two general types: conventional and specialty guidewires. While conventional guidewires are used for the most common types of procedures, specialty guidewires are used in cases where the lumen is occluded and a conventional guidewire is unlikely to be successful.
Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a guidewire-based procedure that can accurately measure blood pressure and flow through a specific part of the coronary artery. FFR guidewires are inserted through a diagnostic catheter during a coronary angiogram. While FFR was still used in only a small percentage of angiography procedures, it is useful in assessing whether or not to perform angioplasty or stenting on borderline blockages. FFR provides data that is complementary to information from standard diagnostic guidewires and imaging systems.
The full report suite on the Japanese market for interventional cardiology includes analysis on the coronary stent, coronary balloon catheter, balloon-inflation device, interventional coronary catheter, interventional coronary guidewire, introducer sheath, coronary vascular closure device, diagnostic coronary catheter and guidewire, fractional flow reserve (FFR) guidewire, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) catheter, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) catheter markets.
Guidewires are used extensively both in diagnostic and interventional peripheral vascular procedures to deliver treatment options. The guidewire market can best be segmented into standard (non-hydrophilic) or hydrophilic guidewires. Standard guidewires are the predominant type because they can handle more pressure than their hydrophilic counterparts. Because of this property, standard guidewires can handle heavy-duty manipulations and maneuvers. Standard guidewires are produced in a variety of configurations based on shape and size. These variants range in price depending on characteristics such as size and flexibility.
