From Which Medical Device

The Amplatz Super Stiff GuideWire is designed to be strong enough to get through tight lesions, but with a tip that is soft enough to be atraumatic during catheter placement and exchanges in procedures.

A good stiff wire for stenting and angioplasty, which can be used extensively for PCNL and biliary procedures. Available in a shorter version well suited for supporting drainage catheter insertion.
