Qosina (Edgewood, NY) has introduced the one-handed hemostasis valve Y connector that allows independent manipulation of multiple guidewires. The one hand control lever action allows for lock and release with light fingertip pressure for three positions: open, semi-open, and closed. A “click” clearly identifies the valve position by acoustic and tactile feedback. The housing is made from high-quality polycarbonate and polyoxymethylene, which has both high clarity and temperature resistance. The silicone valve fits 0 FR–9 FR guidewires and aids in controlling backflow. The rotating male luer lock minimizes tubing kinks, while the female luer lock sideport provides the ability to flush out the line or check pressure.
