Toolbox: Guide Extension

If selective guide engagement continues to be an issue, a guide extension catheter can be railed into a coronary over a coronary wire with or without balloon-assisted tracking.
  • A J-wire can be used for more selective engagement of coronaries through the Balloon expandable valve frame.
  • It is very useful in finding the diamond in front of the ostia and the catheter can be railed over it for coronary engagement.
