Wire Guides

  • Cook® HiWire™ Nitinol Core Wire Guide

    The HiWire is used to gain ureteral access in routine or demanding cases requiring precise control. Once in position, the HiWire may be used to facilitate instrument exchange or placement. Nitinol core allows for maximum deflection without kinking. Tapered tip designed to optimise flexibility. Available in standard and stiff shaft for use in navigating difficult anatomy, straightening of tortuous ureters, and facilitating instrument exchange or placement.

    1:1 torque control allows for precise navigation throughout the most challenging anatomy.

  • Cook® Roadrunner® PC Wire Guide

    Used for catheter positioning and exchange in a tortuous or kinked ureter, or traversing a large stone en route to the kidney. The nitinol core allows for maximum deflection without kinking. The platinum tip ensures high visualisation during fluoroscopy.

    1:1 torque control allows for precise navigation throughout the most challenging anatomy.

    The Roadrunner is available in standard and stiff shaft. The AQ® coating is a microthin layer of hydrophilic polymer that, when activated, attracts and holds water and other liquids to the wire guide, creating a low-friction surface.

  • Cook® Roadrunner® PC Wire Guide – Double Flexible

    Used for catheter positioning in a tortuous or kinked ureter, traversing a stone en route to the kidney, or in cases demanding enhanced control and high radiopacity. The double flexible tipped design permits safe entrance into the body and guards against damage of endoscopic equipment when introducing over the wire guide.

    The nitinol core allows for maximum deflection without kinking. One to one torque control allows for precise navigation throughout the most challenging anatomy. The shaft of the wire guide is marked in 5cm increments for endoscopic visualisation during fluoroscopy.

    The AQ® coating is a microthin layer of hydrophilic polyment that when activated, attracts and holds water and other liquids to the wire guide, creating a low friction surface.

  • Cook® Standard Fixed Core Wire Guide

    Constructed of stainless steel the straight, flexible tip design is used primarily in urology to establish a tract and assist in the placement of a surgical device.
