ASAHI CHIKAI™ is designed as workhorse guide wire for neuro interventional procedures.
CHIKAI family are as follows
- CHIKAI, CHIKAI 10, CHIKAI 008, CHIKAI black, CHIKAI black 18.
CHIKAI, CHIKAI 10 and CHIKAI black are designed for aneurysm treatment and CHIKAI 008 is designed to be used with flow guided microcatheters.
CHIKAI black 18 is designed as guide wire for large ID microcatheter delivery and device delivery.
Adivsed guide wires
AVM/AVF/Meningioma - CHIKAI 008, CHIKAI 10
- Requirements for these procedures :
Small diameter control - for reaching small distal vessels
Shape retention ability to re-shape - for multiple vessel embolization
Atraumatic tip - for safety in fragile vessels
Device support - for carrying floppy microcatheters
CHIKAI 008 : for distal anatomy
best compatible with Balt microcatheters
CHIKAI 10 : for mid-range to distal anatomy
larger sized vessels
best compatible with Covidien/ev3 microcatheters.
Aneurysm - CHIKAI, CHIKAI black, CHIKAI black 18
- Requirements for guide wire :
Control - for selecting branches
Atraumatic tip - to prevent aneurysm perforation
Device support - for carrying large-sized catheter
Tracking capabilities - for navigating tortuousity
Stability - for precise delivery of microcatheter
Stroke - CHIKAI black, CHIKAI black 18
- Requirements for guide wire
Control - for quickly reaching target vessel
Lubricity - to ease microcatheter advancement, for going past thrombus
Device support - for smooth delivery of microcatheters
Supportive tip - for crossing the thrombus
CHIKAI(0.014' workinghorse guide wire) - first choice for aneurysm cases
CHIKAI black(0.014' guide wire with increased lubricity)
- for more complex cases
for 0.017' ID microcatheters(stroke)
for distal aspiration catheter placement(stroke)
CHIKAI black 18(0.018' reverse-tapered shaft specialty guide wire)
- for large microcateters(stent placement and flow diverter delivery)
for 0.021' and larger microcatheters(stroke)
proximal aspiration catheter placement(stroke)
