Effectiveness of the "new rope coil" composite core Suoh 0.3 guidewire in the management of coronary artery dissections

Coronary artery dissection is a well‐known complication of percutaneous coronary interventions. In this setting, coronary artery dissection is caused by mechanical injury of the arterial wall. However, dissection may also occur spontaneously. In both situations, an intimal tear or dissection allows blood entering and separating the layers of the coronary arterial wall. Despite percutaneous approach is still the preferred and the quickest way to restore coronary flow, it remains challenging. One of the main reasons for procedural failure is due to the difficult advancement of a guidewire into the true lumen. In such situation, the ideal wire should have a soft tip, high torque control, and excellent flexibility. Assuming that, the "new rope coil" composite core Suoh 0.3 guidewire, with its unique combination of characteristics, could allow better orientation insight into a dissected coronary artery increasing the chance of procedural success. We collected a case series of nine consecutive patients in which the Suoh 0.3 guidewire was able to gain the true lumen distally to a dissected segment.
