The purpose of this study was to demonstrate first magnetic resonance (MR)-guided stenting of iliac and supraaortic arteries using a polyetheretherketone-based (PEEK) MR-compatible guide wire. In vitro and animal experiments were performed in a short magnet wide-bore scanner (1.5 Tesla, Espree, Siemens Healthcare, Erlangen, Germany). For all experiments, a 0.035'' MR-compatible guide wire prototoype was used. This wire had a compound core of PEEK with reinforcing fibres, a soft and atraumatic tip and a hydrophilic coating. For its passive visualization, paramagnetic markings were attached. All experiments were performed through a vascular introducer sheath under MR-guidance. In vitro repetitive selective over the wire catheterizations of either the right carotid artery and the left subclavian artery were performed. In vivo, selective catheterization and over-the-wire stenting of the brachiocephalic trunk and the left subclavian artery were performed. The common iliac arteries were catheterized retrogradely (left) and cross-over (right). Angioplasty and stenting were performed over-the-wire. All procedures were successful. Visibility of the PEEK-based guide-wire was rated good in vitro and acceptable in vivo. Guide wire pushability and endovascular device support were good. The PEEK-based MR-compatible guide wire is well visible and usable under MR-guidance. It supports over-the-wire treatment of iliac arteries and supraaortic arteries.
