Double loop guiding catheters have been used for percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) of the right coronary artery (RCA) in 42 consecutive cases. A catheter with a 90-degree primary curve was used when the proximal RCA had horizontal or inferior orientation. When the proximal segment of the RCA was oriented superiorly (shepherd's crook), the catheter with a 75-degree primary curve was used. Catheters were fabricated with short (1.5 cm) or long (2.3 cm) (USCI, C.R. Bard, Inc… CONTINUE READING
