  • Use JL3.5 or JR4 catheter.
  • If unable to selectively engage, perform non-selective angiogram ± aortogram.
  • Second line, use guide catheter: Ikari Right 1.5/1.0 or FL3.0.
  • Use guide catheter (Ikari Right of FL 3.0) with a coronary guidewire to wire coronary artery for more selective engagement.
  • Use JL3.5 or JR4 catheter.
  • Selective/semi-selective angiogram is usually diagnostic.
  • Second line, use guide catheter: Ikari Right 1.0/1.5.
  • If skirt is high, use FR4 or Ikari Right 1.0/1.5 guide to enter from diamond above coronary ostia.

  • Use JR4 catheter.
  • If unable to selectively engage perform non-selective angiogram ± aortogram.
  • Second line, use guide catheter: Ikari Right 1.5 or Multipurpose (MP).
  • Use guide catheter (Ikari Right or MP) with a coronary guidewire to wire coronary artery for more selective engagement.
  • Use JL3.5 or JR4 catheter.
  • Selective/semi-selective angiogram is usually diagnostic.
  • Second line, use AR2 catheter (especially if wide sinuses).
  • If skirt is high, use MP guide catheter to enter from diamond above coronary ostia.

  • Use standard catheters JL4/JL3.5 to engage coronary arteries.
  • Attempt to engage coronary artery from cell adjacent to commissural post.
  • If unable to engage, perform non-selective angiogram/aortogram.
  • Use standard guide catheter (FL3, VL3, EBU3) with a coronary guidewire to wire coronary artery for more selective engagement.
  • Use standard catheters JL4/JL3.5 to engage coronary arteries.
