  • Cerebral embolization is a serious complication during diagnostic heart catheterization. To date there have been no studies to determine whether the technique and the catheter type influence the frequency of cerebral microembolic signals (MES's) during left ventricular catheterization. Twenty-two patients had a leading straight tip guidewire protruding 5 to 10 cm outside the coronary catheters when the latter was advanced over the aortic arch (group A), whereas in 21 patients the guidewire was… CONTINUE READING
