    For the field of neurology we have developed the CHIKAI series of guide wires, which all feature the ACT ONE composite core technology that ensures one-to-one torque transmission for optimal control.

    We also offer the guiding catheter FUBUKI, available in 4.2Fr, 6Fr, 7Fr, and 8Fr sizes. FUBUKI combines safety and back-up, two characteristics that are traditionally considered to be a trade-off. Safety is provided by the soft distal shaft and the radiopaque soft material used for the tip that is rounded on both sides. The reinforced proximal part of the shaft on the other hand generates back-up.

    Asahi Intecc is also active in the peripheral field, the PCI field and the abdominal field.
