DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Japan Market Report for Interventional Coronary Catheters 2018 - MedCore" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Guiding catheters run over guidewires and are used at the beginning of an interventional procedure. However, if a guiding catheter cannot cross an occluded lesion, a more specialized device, such as a support catheter, may be employed. Support catheters are able to cross all but the most occluded lesions, although their success depends on the skill and perseverance of the physician. Some lesions are too occluded even for support catheters, and a physician will use a chronic total occlusion (CTO) or atherectomy device in those situations. Usually, lesions that are so occluded can be spotted via X-ray imaging prior to the start of an interventional procedure.
Guiding catheters are used for conventional lesions where minimal support is required, whereas support catheters are used for occluded lesions where more rigidity and torque may be required to cross the lesion. Support catheters are predominantly used for peripheral procedures, and are seldom used for coronary procedures. Within the coronary area, CTO devices are usually used for more occluded lesions, lessening the demand for support catheters within this area.
For these reasons, only guiding catheters are included in this analysis.
