The Safe-Cross radiofrequency guidewire (IntraLuminal Therapeutics, Carlsbad, California) combines 3 capabilities: (1) steerability of a conventional 0.014-in intermediate-stiffness guidewire, (2) optical coherence reflectometry to warn the operator when the wire tip approaches within 1 mm of the vessel wall, and (3) delivery of radiofrequency energy pulses to the wire tip to facilitate passage through an occluded segment. The Guided Radio Frequency Energy Ablation of Total Occlusions Registry… CONTINUE READING
