Guide wire differences between Torque and no Torque
Traversing a tortuous vessel, whether for Interventional Cardiology or Interventional Neurology can require a guide wire that is an extended version of the Interventional Cardiologist or Neurologist own finger. To achieve this, torque technology, like ASAHI’s own patented guide wires, is needed for accurate pushback and little to no whip. See a firsthand example of a guide wire with and without this torque ability.
Crossing the Y-Branch
A side branch occlusion? a tortuous vessel? Not a problem with the right ASAHI INTECC guide wire technology. See it for yourself!
