Abstract

The Proxis catheter has been designed for proximal embolic protection during saphenous vein graft interventions. The Proxis catheter's flexible and kink-resistant design, lubricity, and atraumatic tip allow deep seating in target vessels. We describe six challenging percutaneous coronary intervention cases, in which the Proxis catheter was used in arterial grafts, sequential saphenous vein grafts, and native coronary arteries. Deep seating of the Proxis catheter enabled vessel visualization and equipment delivery, allowing successful completion of each case.
