The Ultra Select¿ guidewire is a solid nitinol core torque wire that recently became available for use in coronary angioplasty. This wire has near one-to-one torque with kink resistant axial strength. The wire is radioopaque and highly visible. It is effective in negotiating severe tortuosity. Nitinol (nickel-titanium alloy) has unique properties that allow for specific performance advantages for use in coronary angioplasty. This report discusses this new guidewire and its use in coronary angioplasty.
