ABSTRACT
A method using transparent plastic molds for shaping angiography catheter curves is described. The ease in formation of multicurve tips is shown. A method of testing and recording catheter curve memory was developed. A comparative analysis of four methods of forming complicated catheter curves was done. The use of molds for custom shaping of small caliber, high rigidity polyethylene tubing is simple, reproducible and economical and gives some advantages over other commonly used shaping methods.
