Transradial coronary intervention using a novel 5-Fr sheathless guiding catheter.

Abstract

We have recently developed a 5-Fr sheathless guiding catheter system (Virtual 3-Fr, Medikit, Japan), composed of a hydrophilic catheter and a central dilator. This combination of catheter and dilator enables us to introduce the catheter into the artery without the need of an introducer sheath. Because the outer diameter of this 5-Fr sheathless guiding… (More)
