Y-wire is a guidewire that is designed to mitigate forward migration during surgery; it also helps eliminate wire kinking issues.  The product was pilot launched in 2011 and to date surgeons have utilized more than 3,500 wires.  The Y-wire is now being commercially released on a national basis.

Dr. James Billys in Tampa, FL has been utilizing the product over during the pilot launch.

"Y-wire has enhanced my ability to perform MIS procedures with cannulated pedicle screws.  I have seen a 50% reduction in fluoroscopy since switching from a standard guidewire.  I have implanted approximately 750 screws while utilizing Y-wire without any breaching of the anterior cortex.  In short, the product makes my procedures faster with less fluoroscopy and with almost no concern for wire migration." – Dr. James Billys. 

The eventual final design has incorporated increased stiffness and bone purchase over the pilot launched product. Wyatt Geist, CEO of SafeWire commented on the national US launch.  "We believe that our first product to market will help improve Minimal invasive procedures.  The feedback that we have received from surgeons in the pilot has been very positive.  It is our hope to continue to improve procedures by releasing new products that will reduce fluoroscopy, minimizing inadvertent trajectories, and will make the procedures faster and easier. The next product to be launched is scheduled in May 2012."
