PMID:  3823448     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Three commercial vessel dilators and a dilator of an improved design were tested during percutaneous catheterization in 16 mongrel dogs to evaluate arterial damage produced with their use. The results indicate that, although all dilators often produce arterial damage, the improved design produced much less damage. In addition, lesions were less severe overall. The dilator has been safely and successfully used in patients for percutaneous vessel catheterization for the past 30 years at the authors' institution.
