French term or phrase: is this a typo?
"Insertion d’un désilet 6F dans l’artère fémorale gauche pour les angiographie guidant la procédure par cathéter Pigtail."

Either I'm missing something or there's a mistake here. How would you read it?

If we're all stuck, I will query with client and give points to the most useful answer.

Thank you. I'm still not entirely sure what's going on in the sentence, but clearer than I was. I will translate as desilet inserted for angio to guide pigtail, but also flag it up with the client.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you drmanu, and also VJC, but I'm still confused. Is it saying that the desilet is used to guide insertion of the pigtail catheter? Or is there such a thing as a pigtail desilet that's being used to guide something else? And how does 'pour les angiographie' [no 's'] fit in? If you're confused too, please say, as anything at all will help me know how to put a question to the client.
