A radiofrequency electrode catheter-guide wire system for arterial occlusion.

Abstract

PURPOSE To describe the design of a radiofrequency (RF) electrode catheter/guide wire system to allow endovascular coagulation of vessels. MATERIALS AND METHODS A circuit was created by modifying an ordinary microcatheter. An electrically conductive ring was placed at a microcatheter tip, and an extension lead at the hub site. They were each connected to… (More)
