Medical - Medical (general) / Angiography
German term or phrase: MP-Führung
This comes from a description of an angioplasty.
They have examined the arteries, and then begin the procedure:

MP-Führung, Pilot, Vorbringen des Spider 7 Protektiossystem verschliesst das Gefaess.

I've looked at different catheters, introducers and brands, but I can't find anything for "MP".
Any ideas?

"...A 6 French (Fr) MP guide catheter was inserted radially but could not be passed into the ascending aorta...."

There are some refs for MP guide in context with angioplasty.

  -> Wobei deine Idee mit dem Tippfehler auch nicht schlecht war, aber IMO läuft die Angioplastie unter Röntgenkontrolle und nicht im MRT ab ;-)

agree  Ken McKerrow: usually MP guidewire (X French) , but it's Fuehrung, and not F..draht, so this is accurate here
