In comparison to conventional hook wires, the shape of the Q-Wire System allows for a precise wire placement into the tissue. If the position of the wire tip, the "Q", after placement is not optimal, it can be easily repositioned by pulling on the wire to retract the "Q" back into the puncture needle. The wire is almost as twice as thick as the standard hook wires, which prevents against accidental wire transection. The "Q", due to its loopy form, once unfolded in the right position assures permanent anchorage in the breast tissue. A distal depth indicator indicates the exact distance from the tumor and allows for a better orientation during surgery.
