Figure 1 A case of tortuosity in the radial artery which could not be passed with the standard J-tip guidewire (A). The Radifocus wire had low steerability and torque transmission; therefore, it always chose the distal path (B). The Silverway wire was able to cross the tortuosity and reached the aortic valve in 19 seconds (no image available).
