The Cordis ANGIOGUARD® RX Guidewire System is the first embolic protection device shown in clinical testing to achieve a relative stroke reduction of 70% during carotid stenting procedures. ANGIOGUARD® RX Guidewire System offers one of the shortest landing Zones with which the short filter basket enables ability to center in tortuous anatomy. This system also provides stroke reduction with which the Polyurethane membrane with 100 pores captures clinically relevant emboli and shown in clinical testing to reduce the rate of stroke. The unique umbrella design centers in the vessel with high device delivery success and excellent wall apposition which is a part of the Self-Centering feature of the Cordis ANGIOGUARD® RX Guidewire System. Eight Nitinol struts keep the symmetric basket in contact with the arterial wall, with marker bands on every other strut, in addition to a proximal and distal marker band to ensure high visibility during the procedure. Its Excellent Crossability feature makes the profile as low as 3.2F facilitates crossing difficult lesions.
