The article focuses on a new standardized method of radiographic visualization of the coronary arteries. It is performed under local anesthesia by percutaneous puncture of the femoral artery for insertion of a plastic catheter. The introduction and widespread application of coronary arteriography may very well take the precious information now only available in a postmortem report and place it in the hands of the cardiologist, the radiologist and the surgeon. The method of diastolic injection during pharmacologically induced prolongation of the H-R interval is reported in great detail.
