Abstract

This case report presents an example of the use of the double wire technique for additional guiding catheter bracing support in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) of a stenosis in an anomalous circumflex (CX) artery arising within the ostium of the right coronary artery (RCA). It illustrates the ease of this technique in comparison to conventional guiding catheter cannulation, which may be more difficult and yield poor backup support in this unusual anatomic situation.
