||PCT/IL2014/050386||CARDIOSERT LTD.||SHEKALIM, Avraham|
A guidewire assembly (10) having selectively adjustable stiffness and tip curvature includes a hollow guidewire (12) having a distal portion (14) terminating at a distal tip (16), a curvature-modifying element (18) anchored to the distal tip, and a stiffness-modifying element (20) displaceable within the hollow guidewire towards and away form the distal tip so as to vary a stiffness of the distal element are frictionally linked such that movement of the stiffness-modifying element from a current position over a first range of motion causes corresponding displacement of the curvature-modifying element, thereby modifying a state of curvature of a least part of the distal portion of the guidewire. Movement of the stiffness-modifying element beyond the first range of motion displaces the stiffness-modifying element relative to the curvature-modifying element.
