Shanghai, China – Recently, Shanghai MicroPort Medical Group Co., Ltd. ("MicroPort®") gained a China Food and Drug Administration ("CFDA") registration certificate for its in-house developed Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel.
 
The Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel is a sterile disposable surgical accessory, used for diagnosis of peripheral blood vessels or facilitating the insert of guiding catheter in interventional treatment. In Seldinger Technique, the Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel is inserted into the vessel through a sheath to guide the catheter to reach the lesion vessel. In the process of introducing the catheter, the soft tip of the Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel is always in front of the catheter, so under X-ray observation the physician can confirm the position of the catheter.
 
Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel has hydrophilic coating on its surface. Compared to Super slip/Loach guide wires on the market, MicroPort®'s Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel adopts improved formulation of coating material and coating process to guarantee excellent pushability and crossability of the Hydrophilic Guide Wire while making it easy for the operator to handle to reduce the incidence of complications. The CFDA approval of the Hydrophilic Guide Wire For Peripheral Blood Vessel further diversified MicroPort®'s product portfolio and expanded the field of application for MicroPort®'s surgical accessories.
