Observations on direct coronary catheterization and selective coronary cine-arteriography in 10 dogs and 20 patients are presented. Continuous electrocardiographic tracings and coronary arterial pressures during catheterization and after the injection of the contrast medium demonstrate the safety of the procedure even in patients with severe obstructive lesions of the coronary arteries. With this method, a dynamic anatomic record of the coronary circulation obtained with small amounts of contrast medium and without superimposed incidental opacification. The indications for coronary arteriography are based on the need for precise anatomic diagnosis in patients with doubtful clinical and electrocardiographic diagnosis of coronary diseases, in selection of patients for coronary surgery and in evaluation of the effects of operation on the coronary circulation.
