Catheters, Cardiac, Angiography, High-Flow

Definition : Angiographic cardiac catheters available in several designs (e.g., pigtail, Gensini) that usually include distal tips with multiple side holes for the release of contrast material at high injection rates (e.g., 60 mL/sec). These catheters are designed for the nonselective opacification of cardiac chambers and large vessels. High-flow angiographic catheters are also used to perform pulmonary angiography via the brachial or femoral approach or to opacify the aorta, the aortic valve, and the vessels that arise from the aorta (aortography).
