DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Japan Market Report for Interventional Coronary Guidewires 2018 - MedCore" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Interventional guidewires are manufactured in three distinct layers: the first layer is called the shaft, which is usually made from stainless steel; the second layer is the coil, which needs to be flexible and resistant (for this reason the coil is usually made of platinum); and the final layer is the coating, which is usually made of silicone or another polymer in order to avoid puncturing the lumen, thus facilitating the insertion of the device.
Manufacturers are continually improving the structure, design and construction of guidewires. These improvements are creating more robust and flexible devices, which are becoming popular amongst physicians, particularly during interventions involving a chronic total occlusion (CTO).
In addition, there is a shift towards the use of hydrophilic guidewires. While hydrophilic guidewires are more expensive, they have more flexibility and fluidity, making them useful in delicate procedures, particularly in procedures where a CTO needs to be crossed.
