We reviewed the first 100 cases of transseptal catheterization performed at the Division of Cardiology, Mexico City General Hospital; 15 cases in which this method was used to visualize the thoracic aorta and its branches were selected. We considered this method as a modification of the selective method of angiocardiography, used in those cases in which it is not desirable or possible to catheterize the arteries. In .some cases the coronary arteries and the aortic valve are seen very satisfactorily. It is also possible to rule out associated cardiac lesions such as ventricular or atrial septal defects. There were no complications in our series.
