A comparative study of guidewire electrical resistance.


OBJECTIVE To evaluate the electrical resistance to current conduction of different guidewires used routinely in endourology and thus determine the risk of short circuits between the active electrode and the guide. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using a standard resistance meter, the electrical resistance of four different types of guidewires was measured. Pure… (More)
