The FloWire Doppler guide wire is the only doppler guide wire that provides direct measurement of intracoronary flow. This guide wire is useful in evaluating intermediate lesions, multi-vessel or multi-lesion disease, and restenosed lesions.
The FloWire is a steerable guide wire with a tip-mounted ultrasound transducer that transmits pulsed wave ultrasound and receives reflections of those pulses from moving blood cells, allowing calculation of blood velocity using the Doppler principle when used with the ComboMap system. The distal 3 cm of the guide wire is shapeable and radiopaque.
