Two patients with small right coronary arteries are presented. Possible complications during coronary angiography and methods of preventing them are discussed. It is stressed that the time of occlusion of the artery by the catheter tip should be kept to a minimum. The use of newly available angiographic catheters with side holes is also illustrated.
