Abstract

In this report, we describe an alternative method to the conventional arteriographic techniques of the left internal mammary artery (LIMA) graft using a balloon-tipped floatation catheter placed within the left subclavian artery. The floatation catheter will serve as both an occluder of the subclavian artery as well as a port for contrast injection. It may be effectively employed in the rare instances where direct cannulation of the LIMA graft is not possible.
