Catheters, Cardiac, Angiography, Transseptal
Definition : Angiographic cardiac catheters that usually include distal tips formed into a circular curve (typical radius 270 degrees) with an end hole and multiple side holes. These catheters are designed to pass through the interatrial septum from the right atrium to the left atrium with the aid of a special needle or a guide wire. Transseptal catheters are used for the simultaneous angiography of the left atrium and left ventricle.
