Abstract

Because of common difficulties in obtaining adequate pressure tracing during transluminal coronary angioplasty, the pressure transmission characteristics of catheter systems used for angioplasty were determined. Transmission of cine wave pressures (0.2 to 14 Hz) and of arterial pressure pulses reproduced in vitro was evaluated.
