Abstract

Previous techniques for cannulation of the coronary sinus have required entry into the right atrium from the superior vena cava. We describe a new technique for cannulation of the coronary sinus from the femoral vein using a standard, unmodified Simmons II catheter. This method was successful in 97% of the patients attempted. The method for using this catheter from the femoral route is described.
