Physicians performing TIPS procedures request accessories that provide instant feedback. The GORE TIPS Set, composed of the GORE TIPS Needle and GORE® TIPS Sheath, provides this feedback – while also offering the flexibility to order components individually.

The GORE TIPS Set offers physicians:

  • Precise Needle Puncture: The GORE TIPS Needle features a sharp needle tip for puncture precision, stiffness for responsive torque control, and an ergonomic handle for a stable grip.
  • Stability During Advancement: The exclusive and unique interlocking feature of the GORE® TIPS Sheath secures the dilator hub and sheath during advancement for maximum component stability.
  • Instant Visual Feedback: The transparent tapered GORE® TIPS Sheath hub delivers immediate visual feedback of device and delivery catheter advancement for a smooth insertion into the introducer sheath.
  • Needle Safety: Only the GORE TIPS Needle features a status band that when visible confirms that the needle tip is covered.
  • Economic Value: The GORE TIPS Set is designed for optimum cost efficiency: Order, stock, and use only the components needed.

With features designed to deliver optimal control, instant visual confirmation, and accuracy, physicians have access to advanced accessories designed exclusively for TIPS procedures.
