Important Safety Information

Rx HydroSteer™ GUIDEWIRES

 

INDICATIONS FOR USE

Abbott Medical guidewires are intended for use in the percutaneous introduction of catheters.

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

There are no known contraindications for this device.

 

WARNINGS

Do not reuse this device. Discard after one procedure. Thorough cleaning of biological and foreign material is not possible. Adverse patient reactions may result from reuse of this device.

  1. The hydrophilic guidewire may slide entirely into the catheter, sheath introducer, vessel dilator or other device because of its low sliding friction. To prevent this, keep at least 5 cm of the wire protruding from the device fitting at all times.
  2. To prevent possible tissue damage, care should be taken when manipulating a device over a guidewire during the device’s placement and withdrawal. If resistance is felt during device placement, discontinue the procedure and determine the cause of resistance before proceeding. If the cause of resistance cannot be determined, remove the guidewire and device as a unit to prevent possible damage and/or complications.
  3. When using a guidewire, potential exists for thrombus formation or emboli, arterial or venous wall damage and/or plaque dislodgment. The physician should be familiar with the literature concerning the complications of angiography.
  4. Abbott Medical does not recommend a particular technique for the use of this guidewire. The steps contained in the directions are for information purposes only. Each physician should evaluate their appropriateness according to individual patient condition and his or her medical training and experience.
