Dye-enhanced fluoroscopy-directed catheter embolectomy.

PMID:  6710358     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A method is presented that uses a double-lumen balloon catheter to perform embolectomy under contrast-enhanced fluoroscopy control. The technique has the advantage of localization of the thrombi before removal; it permits the individual arterial branches to be entered during embolectomy and allows confirmation of the patency of the arterial tree after completion of the embolectomy.
