Transition without Losing Position
The PiggyBack® Wire Converter is a 0.035” outer diameter wire converter that can be delivered over and locked onto a 0.014” guidewire to allow subsequent delivery of 0.035” compatible catheters, sheaths and devices.
0.014” Inside, 0.035” Outside
The PiggyBack® Wire Converter is useful for peripheral procedures requiring a 0.014” guidewire for easier access and a 0.035” guidewire for more support. The PiggyBack® Wire Converter is designed to convert a 0.014” guidewire to a 0.035” platform without losing vessel placement or exchanging guidewires.
How Does It Work?
The PiggyBack® Wire Converter can be delivered over a 0.014” guidewire in situ or preloaded onto a 0.014” guidewire before it is placed intravascular.
Do not advance the PiggyBack® Wire Converter without a guidewire in place. Advancement of the PiggyBack® Wire Converter without a guidewire in place may result in intimal damage, arterial dissection or perforation.
