Objective: There is no special catheter used for carotid angiography in the market. We studied the efficacy feasibility and safety of Femoral S carotid catheter (made by shaping existing catheters) in this study.

Methods: 1169 patients undergoing transfemoral or transradial carotid angiography between the years 2015 and 2017 were evaluated. The 156 patients found that are underwent carotid angiography with Femoral S catheter.

Results: The Baseline characteristics of the patients were record. The total time of the procedure with the new catheter was found 7.2 ± 1.3 min and the amount of opaque media used was 50.20 ± 15.60 ml. Selective imaging success was high 95%. Minor Complication (local hematoma, leg pain, dizziness, headache, hypotension, allergic reaction of the contrast media) development was found 3.8%. Permanent damage, morbidity and/or mortality were not seen in patients.

Discussion: The right judkins catheter is usually preferred in the carotid angiography performed with the femoral route. The newly developed catheter does not stick to the aortic wall because the tip is in the “S” shape. Therefore, the processing time is shorter and the imaging performance is better than multipurpose catheter.

Conclusion: Carotid angiography with the newly developed Femoral S carotid catheter seems easier and safer. Performing of Carotid angiography may help to reduce stroke frequency at the time of coronary angiography in patients with coronary artery disease.
