Case description

Seldinger technique was elaborated to provide quick and safe access to blood vessels and hollow organs. The desired vessel is puntured with trocar, then a guidewire is introduced through the lumen of the trocar which is withdrawn later. A blunt cannnula can be passed into the vessel and the guidewire is withdrawn. This video presents a method of introducing an intravascular warming or cooling cathether in a patient via femoral vein. The surgeon is using modified Seldinger technique.
