    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.
