Learn more about the benefits of OptoWire® as a pressure guidewire to diagnose and treat with confidence at SCAI 2019 (Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions) by attending Opsens’ complimentary lunch  and educational symposium.  Register Now!

The OptoWire features a large nitinol core with excellent torque response and deliverability. With the OptoWire you can diagnose and treat your patients with confidence. Opsens second generation fiber optic pressure guidewire is designed to provide the lowest drift in the industry while reducing procedural costs with the ability to deliver the PCI over the same guidewire.

Leading experts in coronary physiology will demonstrate the clinical utility of coronary physiology assessments and the second generation fiber optic pressure guidewire in various clinical situations.
