Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to discover a simple method for the percutaneous insertion of cardiac catheters. A special slotted needle has been designed that has significantly reduced the time and number of manipulations required for percutaneous insertion of cardiac catheters. Other advantages of the needle include minimal amount of blood loss and little or no risk of subsequent thrombosis. Author
