Proven Terumo Coronary Guidewire Technology Is Now Available in the United States
Date:9/12/2007

SOMERSET, N.J., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Having already made great strides in Japan and Europe, Terumo's Runthrough NS Coronary Guidewire is ready to take on America.

Terumo Interventional Systems announces the launch of its breakthrough Runthrough(TM) NS Coronary Guidewire to the U.S. market. With its superior tip durability, complete torque transfer and enhanced steerability, this coronary guidewire boasts efficiency and reliability unlike that of other coronary guidewires. For use in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties (PTCA), this product launch expands Terumo's expertise beyond the periphery and into the coronary space.

The primary difference between the Runthrough NS and other coronary guidewires is its exceptional tip shape retention. Because the tip retains its shape better than the leading coronary guidewires, as shown in head-to-head testing, the Runthrough NS gives physicians the ability to perform multi-vessel procedures with one wire. By making vessel selection and lesion crossing easier, the Runthrough NS may result in more efficient and cost-effective procedures.

"The tip is worth its weight in gold," said Dr. Richard Heuser, Chief of Cardiology with St. Luke's Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona, who was involved in the U.S. trials of the Runthrough NS.

The Runthrough NS also features Terumo's unique DuoCore(TM) Technology. DuoCore fuses two proven guidewire technologies for one-to-one torque transfer and ensures excellent steerability, pushability and trackability. The fine tactile feel of the Runthrough NS also provides excellent guide and device support.

In addition, this first-choice coronary guidewire features the optimal balance of hydrophobic and hydrophilic coatings. The resultant smooth trackability in tortuous vessels and superior device delivery creates a significantly improved experience for the user.

"The balloon feels as if it is floating down the wire with absolutely no resistance," commented Dr. Lee Jobe of Wake Heart after testing the Runthrough NS.

"The launch of our first coronary product in the United States is very exciting," said Gary Clifton, Marketing Manager, Terumo Interventional Systems Coronary Product Line. "But more than that, to have a product received so well by the Cardiology community is a true testament to our heritage of product innovation."
