Growth in CVT portfolio: pfm medical becomes exclusive distributer for EmeryGlide from Nano4Imaging


pfm medical is expanding its cardiovascular product portfolio with the EmeryGlide MR conditional guidewire from Nano4Imaging. The two companies announced their future cooperation at the AEPC Congress in Seville.

pfm medical has been successful with its products in the field of cardiovascular therapies both nationally and internationally for many years, especially in interventional pediatric cardiology. With the EmeryGlide pfm medical expands this portfolio with a new innovative product.

The wire is safe to use in MRI under defined conditions and enables diagnostic catheter examination to be transferred from the catheter laboratory to the MRI. This not only reduces X-ray exposure for patients and users; it also enables additional and more detailed imaging, which in many cases improves diagnostics. In addition, the utilization of the catheter laboratory and MRT can be optimized. 

The company will exclusively market EmeryGlide in the entire CE region initially.
