High Performance Guidewire
The NovaGold High Performance Guidewire is an .018” guidewire that provides a Triton™ Alloy Core for durability and a radiopaque tip for visibility.
The NovaGold High Performance Guidewire is intended for use in selective cannulation of the biliary ducts, including the common bile, pancreatic, cystic, right and left hepatic ducts, and to aid in the placement of diagnostic and therapeutic devices during endoscopic procedures.
- The Triton™ Alloy Core provides a durable wire for working with accessory devices. The stiffness of the wire makes it pushable yet flexible for loading and rail support through the scope to facilitate device exchange.
- The 6cm atraumatic tip provides flexibility needed to access the pancreatico-biliary system.
- The radiopaque guidewire tip is designed to help confirm location within the duct under fluoroscopy.

ERCP can be a complex and demanding procedure, and passing a difficult stricture can be one of the trickiest moments during ERCP procedures. Thanks to improvements in coating materials –especially hydrophilic ones- and metals forming the core of guidewires, as well as cannulae and dilators, only a few strictures still resist the efforts of the expert endoscopist. However, the slim remaining fraction of untractable obstacles means that those patients’ condition will worsen or that more invasive interventions may be necessary. The NovaGold™ High Performance Guidewire is a recently launched guidewire, .018 inches in diameter with a stiff body and a 6cm long gold tip providing high flexibility and alpha-loop forming capacity with adequate shape memory.
