dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: A young woman with angiographically normal coronary arteries had asymptomtic iatrogenic catheter-induced dissection of her right coronary artery which was managed conservatively. Because of continuing chest pain despite therapy, over a year later she again underwent selective coronary arteriography; a Softip cardiovascular catheter (Angiomedics Inc., Minneapolis) was used without complication. This may be the first report of use of this catheter after previous iatrogenic coronary artery dissection caused by a more conventional type. It is also the first time that this catheter was employed in the RSA. The use of a Softip cardiovascular catheter may significantly reduce this complication of a common coronary angiography.
