Right heart catheterization with a Swan-Ganz balloon catheter via femoral vein in the patient with dilated right atrium and ventricle is frequently difficult due to excessive catheter coiling in the dilated atrium. A new technique is described in this situation. By using a modified transseptal-type sheath positioned counterclockwise in right atrium as an introducing sheath, a balloon catheter can be easily advanced to the distal pulmonary artery by smooth counterclockwise direction and secure support from this sheath.
