Introducing PowerWire® Pro RF Guidewire

Cross occluded peripheral stents with radiofrequency puncture technology

PowerWire® Pro RF Guidewire is indicated to create a channel in totally occluded peripheral vessels 3 mm or greater, including vessels with stents.

Cross Occluded Peripheral Stents

Crossing chronic in-stent occlusions is not always possible with conventional techniques

Overcome barriers to venous stent reintervention

up to 20%

May require stent reintervention

Up to 20% of patients will require re-intervention following iliofemoral venous stenting.1 Conventional techniques often fall short in crossing chronic in-stent occlusions.

Successfully cross occluded stents


Success rate with the PowerWire® Family of Guidewires

In cases where standard methods have failed, interventionalists have achieved successful recanalization in 67-89% of chronically occluded iliac or iliocaval stents using the PowerWire® family of guidewires.2-4

Create a Path Through Occluded Peripheral Stents

Enable intervention with reliable crossing. ​

Crossing an occlusion can often be the most difficult and time-consuming step in stent revascularization procedures. The PowerWire® Pro RF Guidewire is designed to reliably cross challenging occlusions because the inability to cross should never stop you from intervening and treating your patients.


Use RF energy to create a channel through complete in-stent occlusions.


Exchange length design to support the introduction of interventional devices.​ 0.035″ outer diameter supports over-the wire devices.


Facilitate venous stent recanalization for complete occlusions that are refractory to standard techniques​.

Safely cross occlusions using RF Puncture Technology

RF Puncture Technology

Creates a small opening in tissue with minimal damage to surrounding area
High impedance High voltage Short RF delivery time
Low power Small active tip

How does RF puncture differ from RF ablation?

Maximum Outer Diameter

Handles like a conventional 0.035″ guidewire. Allows for use with third party, over the wire devices such as venous thrombectomy devices.

Tip Strength

Increasing tip strength corresponds to increasing stiffness

Safe Crossing Technology

Contact with metal terminates RF energy, reducing the potential for vessel extravasation when crossing in-stent occlusions

RF puncture creates a small opening in tissue with minimal surrounding tissue damage. RF Ablation creates a large lesion to destroy electrically conductive tissue. RF Ablation uses:
   Low impedance    Low voltage    Longer RF delivery time
   High power    Large active tip
