Ultra-smooth guide wire is a special guide wire for interventional diagnosis and treatment. The ultra-smooth guide wire has a special surface treatment to reduce the friction between the guide wire and the microcatheter, Or the resistance of the guide wire when passing through the cavity of human tissue such as the ureter, improve the guiding and conveying ability of the guide wire, and reduce the risk of damage to human tissue.

Super-smooth guidewires usually achieve super-smooth effect through surface coating,

Generally can be divided into hydrophilic coating and hydrophobic coating. The outer layer of the zebra guide wire (guide wire for urinary tract) is covered with a hydrophobic and developable blue-white two-color PTFE film, so named the zebra guide wire.

Its inner core is usually made of nickel-titanium alloy. It is suitable for urological operations of non-vascular lumens such as ureteral calculus and kidney stones.
