ABSTRACT
Percutaneously introduced preformed polyethylene catheters can be successfully and very conveniently used in most diagnostic hemodynamic and angiographic studies of the cardiovascular system. The technique involves suitably preshaped catheters and relies, in addition, on the excellent flexibility and rapid plastic memory of the catheter material. A major advantage of the technique is that a minimum of manipulations is necessary for insertion and changes of catheters and for selective intubation of cavities and vessels.
