Sel·din·ger tech·nique

(sel'ding-gĕr),
a method of percutaneous insertion of a catheter into a blood vessel or space. A needle is used to puncture the structure and a guide wire is threaded through the needle; when the needle is withdrawn, a catheter is threaded over the wire; the wire is then withdrawn, leaving the catheter in place.

Seldinger technique

A generic eponymous term for any guidewire procedure, named after Swedish radiologist Dr Sven-Ivar Seldinger (1921–1998),  who introduced the procedure in 1953, which allows safe access to blood vessels and hollow organs. Seldinger techniques entail percutaneous puncture with a trocar or needle, tract or vessel dilation as needed, advancement of a guidewire and removal of the trocar. A “sheath” or blunt cannula can then be passed over the guidewire into the cavity or vessel of interest (alternatively, drainage tubes are passed over the guidewire, as in chest drains or nephrostomies); after passing a sheath of tube, the guidewire is withdrawn.

The Ohio Third Frontier grant will allow us to further the development of an effective solution to crossing CTOs with a guidewire which will improve patient outcome without altering the clinician's guidewire technique.
was established to develop and commercialize a solution to the unmet need for a CTO crossing percutaneously: a miniaturized electromagnetic solenoid that produces longitudinal vibration at the guidewire tip for safely penetrating CTOs without significantly changing the clinician's guidewire technique and feel.
Retained guidewire technique has also been used for anchoring leads after experiencing multiple dislodgements (22).

It is estimated that 30-50% of people diagnosed with coronary artery disease have at least one CTO, yet patients are rarely treated due to challenging nature of the cases and the inability to cross the CTO with conventional guidewire techniques.
By most definitions, CTOs are complete blockages of a vessel that have been present for at least one month and are extremely difficult to cross with conventional guidewire techniques.
