BACKGROUND Engagement of the brachiocephalic vessels during carotid angiography is performed using a JR-4, Vitek, or other catheters with variable success. These catheters require additional training for safe manipulation. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of using the 3D RCA catheter which requires less manipulation in the aorta, and less… CONTINUE READING
