Abstract

Optimal guide catheter engagement and an embolic protection strategy are crucial for successful saphenous vein graft (SVG) percutaneous coronary interventions. We describe three SVG cases during which the use of Proxis device not only provided embolic protection, but also served as a guide catheter anchor allowing distal stent delivery, after failed attempts using conventional techniques.
