The Olympus Endo Therapy Sales team has announced its exclusive distributorship of the Terumo GLIDEWIRE Endoscopic Hydrophilic Coated Guidewire.

Beginning immediately, the team will distribute the GLIDEWIRE Endoscopic Guidewire to U.S. customers. The product is designed for endoscopic treatment of the biliary and pancreatic systems.

"I have used the GLIDEWIRE for ERCP and for complex advanced endoscopic procedures for more than 20 years," said Todd Baron, MD, director of advanced therapeutic endoscopy at UNC School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, N.C. "I find it to be extremely useful for navigating difficult strictures, especially when other guidewires have failed. It is an indispensable tool for consistently succeeding in ERCP."

"By adding this trusted guidewire to our EndoTherapy line-up, we extend the guidewire options for complex ERCP procedures," said Earl Adamy, executive director of endotherapy marketing at Olympus.
