This paper describes the use of trans-septal left heart angiography for the diagnosis of lesions of the aorta and its major branches. Eleven cases wore studied. Indications for study were, the inability to enter the arterial system because of multiple arterial occlusion, where intra-aortic catheterisation was particularly hazardous, e.g. aortic aneurysms, where intra-cardiac or pulmonary lesions had to he excluded. The technique provided diagnostic information in all cases with safety. It is advocated for the small number of difficult cases in whom standard catheter aortography cannot be performed.
