English term or phrase:introducer sheath
Gain access at the appropriate site utilizing a 6F (2.00 mm) introducer sheath.
Your doctor will choose to insert your guiding catheter in one of three spots:
Catheter introduction into the groin requires a small incision to be made on the inside of your upper thigh so an introducer sheath (short tube) can be inserted into your femoral artery. Next, your doctor will insert a guiding catheter (long, flexible tube) into the introducer sheath and advance it through the aorta to where the coronary arteries branch off to the heart or affected peripheral artery;
What Happens During the Procedure?
You will be awake during your procedure. From time to time, your doctor or a staff member may give you instructions. It is important to listen for these instructions and to do what is asked.
Angioplasty includes four major steps:
The balloon catheter will pass through the guiding catheter to the artery near the narrowing. A guide wire inside the balloon catheter is then advanced through the artery until the tip is beyond the narrowing.
Next, the angioplasty catheter is moved over the guide wire until the balloon is within the narrowed segment.
Once in position, the balloon is inflated. It is common to experience some pain when the balloon is inflated, because blood flow through the artery is temporarily decreased or blocked. This pain should decrease when the balloon is deflated. It is important to tell your doctor if you do experience pain.
When your doctor is satisfied that the plaque has been compressed and that the artery has been opened sufficiently, he or she will remove the deflated balloon catheter. By taking more x-ray pictures of the artery, your physician can see how much the blood flow has improved.
