The guidewire has an elongated body which provides flexibility and a distal tip. Generally, a coronary guidewire has three parts: central core, outer covering and flexible distal tip. The core is made of either stainless steel, dura steel or nitinol. The coating on guidewire may be either hydrophilic or hydrophobic. A standard coronary guidewire has an elongated body which provides flexibility and a distal tip. Generally, a coronary guidewire has three parts: a central core, an outer covering and a flexible distal tip. The core is made of either stainless steel, dura steel or nitinol. The coating on the guidewire may be either hydrophilic or hydrophobic. FFR Coronary Guidewires, also known as Fractional Flow Reserve Coronary Guidewires, are a specialized type of guidewire that contain an integrated sensor which measures blood pressure and flow within a specific region of a coronary artery during angiography.
Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the coronary guidewires devices market within Japan was expected to be over $100m in 2022.
