Abstract

A simplified method of selective antegrade catheterization of the superficial femoral artery using a movable-core guide wire is described. This technique obviates the need for multiple catheter and guide wire manipulations and exchanges when preferential passage of the guide wire into the profunda femoral artery occurs following antegrade common femoral artery puncture.
