Title: GUIDE WIRE
Abstract:
This guide wire (1) includes: a flexible, elongated wire body (2); a distal end member (6) that covers a distal end of the wire body (2) and is constituted of a resin material; and a hydrophilic lubrication layer (10) that is formed so as to cover the proximal end (63) of the distal end member (6) and is constituted of a hydrophilic material. The hydrophilic lubrication layer (10) assumes a tapered shape that gradually reduces in outer diameter going toward the proximal end side. The maximum outer diameter of the hydrophilic lubrication layer (10) is smaller than the maximum outer diameter of the distal end member (6). A proximal end section of the distal end member (6) assumes a tapered shape that gradually reduces in outer diameter going toward the proximal end side, and the distal end of the hydrophilic lubrication layer (10) is positioned at the portion of the distal end member (6) that assumes a tapered shape.
