Abstract

See full text

Valved self-perfusing guiding catheter comprises an elongate, flexible catheter body, passageways disposed along at least a portion of the catheter body for permitting perfusion through a central lumen of the catheter body, and one-way valves for preventing passage of injectable agents, such as contrast media, through the passageways.
