Abstract

A medical instrument includes a flexible catheter, a medical guidewire, and a mechanized guidewire drive assembly. The catheter has a distal end insertable into a body lumen of a patient. The mechanized guidewire drive assembly is adapted for operable engagement with the medical guidewire. The mechanized guidewire drive assembly includes a motor and includes a controller which drives the motor with a driving force. The driving force has a predetermined upper limit.
