Depending on the patient, reaching distal and tortuous anatomy can be a challenge. This is why we are excited to introduce two new solutions for targeting and treating challenging anatomy – the high-flow .027 inch ID Cantata® Microcatheter and the .016 inch Alight® Microwire. Both products can be shaped by hand, even the all-nitinol Alight microwire. They also exhibit optimal tip torqueability. Alight and Cantata can be used as companion products or to complement the products you are already using.
The Cantata Microcatheter is now available in a 2.9 Fr size with a high-flow .027 inch ID that allows you to deliver a wider range of embolic agents. Complementing the existing line of superselective microcatheters (.021 inch ID and .025 inch ID), the Cantata 2.9 Fr is hand-shapeable and has a full-length braid for optimal torqueability.
The Alight Superselective Microwire Guide is a companion for your microcatheter. You can shape this .016 inch, all-nitinol microwire by hand to your own specifications. There’s no transition, which means you will have uninterrupted torque transmission. Even with two separate coatings, the Alight microwire feels seamless from end to end. The distal polymer jacket provides good visibility under fluoroscopy.
You can contact your local Cook Medical rep to try these products in your next case. We also encourage you to attend an upcoming embolization course from our Vista℠ Collaboration and Learning Program.
