A percutaneous medial saphenous artery catheterization technique for swine femoral access is described. The medial saphenous artery is accessed with a 22-gauge catheter-over-needle assembly, followed by 4-Fr 10-cm sheath insertion using the Seldinger technique. The 4-Fr sheath is subsequently exchanged over a 0.035-inch guidewire for a 5-Fr sheath to(More)
The aim of this study was to develop a technically simple swine aneurysm-training model by inserting a silicone aneurysm circuit in the cervical vessels. A silicone aneurysm circuit was created by designing multiple aneurysms in size and configuration on a silicone vessel. Five swine underwent surgical implantation of this circuit in the cervical vessels:(More)
