The devices are the first .014-inch wires designed specifically for crossing chronic total occlusions and extremely tight lesions in the peripheral arteries, including the superficial femoral artery, popliteal and tibial arteries.
The Approach microwire line has several product features that address the challenging anatomy of the leg, an important step in the development of PAD medical technology,” said Rob Lyles, vice president and global leader of Cook Medical’s peripheral intervention division. “This latest advancement illustrates Cook’s commitment to exploring every possible technology to treat PAD. At Cook, we continuously strive to improve the quality of our products and, in turn, improve the quality of patient outcomes.”
The microwires are the latest peripheral diagnostic products to support the complete Leg Therapy initiative from Cook, a comprehensive line of advanced minimally invasive access products and interventional devices that addresses the anatomical challenges of treating peripheral arterial disease in the legs. With the launch of the full Leg Therapy Program, Cook will deliver clinically effective interventional solutions to patients who need them most.
