Wire guides – long, flexible, atraumatic wires are used for insertion into blood vessels through a needle. They are designed to achieve and transition occlusions to facilitate the introduction of interventions such as stents or balloons. Wire guides can vary in material, diameter, core, tip design, spiral, and coating.
Introducers also called a sheath or an introducer sheath, are designed to insert balloons, stents, catheters, micro-catheters, or other diagnostic and interventional devices through the skin and vessel wall that cannot be inserted alone to reach the required site. The use of introducers reduces the risk of recurrent vascular wall damage.
