Paper Abstract

We developed a new percutaneous transluminal coronary angioscopic catheter for visualization of coronary artery.This angioscopic catheter has an inflatable balloon at the distal tip and one - directional angulation mechanism.We performed percutaneous transluminal coronary angioscopy during cardiac catheterization cosecutively in 155 patients. With this angioscope , we could get good'-'fair visualization in 81%(131 of 162 lesions)without major complications.We could investigate the endothelial macropathology of ischemic heart disease such as unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction.
