Vascular Solutions offers new line of guidewires
Vascular Solutions has launched its new Muskie line of 0.014-inch guidewires, which offer a range of distal tip stiffness that allows physicians to select an appropriate guidewire for crossing stenosed lesions.

The Minneapolis-based company said its Muskie guidewires have a one-piece core construction designed to transfer torque from the proximal portion of the guidewire to the distal tip. The Muskie guidewires are available in lengths of 195cm or 300cm with five options for tip stiffness--3g, 4.5g, 6g, 9g and 12g. The Muskie line is intended for use in the coronary or peripheral vasculature and is currently available for sale in the U.S.
