Abstract

The use of smaller catheters for diagnostic and intervention purpose is becoming increasingly popular due to the shift towards transradial catheterisation. The use of smaller catheters permits smaller arterial punctures, which translates into early mobilisation and discharge, as it may obviate the need for closure devices, lesser contrast volume use, potential nephrotoxicity and decreased morbidity. Here, we report a case, where standard 5 F Tiger diagnostic catheters (Terumo Radifocus Optitorque, Japan) was used for primary percutaneous coronary intervention of left circumflex artery with abnormal take-off of the left main.
