Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo). 1993 Oct;33(10):716-8. doi: 10.2176/nmc.33.716.


A new technique to obtain selective internal carotid, external carotid and vertebral artery angiograms through the transbrachial route using a special 4-Fr long catheter and long guidewire positioned by a turn over technique is described. The technique was used in 25 geriatric patients to obtain angiograms without persistent complications.
