Increased Efficiency: An intuitive guidewire insertion port and a superior c-channel particularly developed for the VisiGlide line of guidewires endorse augmented technical effectiveness for short-wire consumers.

Integrated Access: The integrated line of guidewires in VisiGlide offers the endoscopist with the correct wire for all conditions on the basis of technique, preference, and anatomical necessities.
