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 A needle is used to puncture the structure and a guide wire is threaded through the needle; when the needle is withdrawn, a catheter is threaded over the wire; the wire is then withdrawn, leaving the catheter in place.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are passed over the guidewire, as in chest drains or nephrostomies); after passing a sheath of tube, the guidewire is withdrawn.

Diagnostic coronary angiography and PCI were performed by the insertion of a 6-French (Fr) arterial sheath via the radial artery using the Seldinger method after local anesthesia.
IABP catheter was inserted by the percutaneous Seldinger method. Open technique was used in cases in which it was not possible for the catheter to be implanted with the percutaneous method; 8.0-9F and 35-40ml volumes were used as catheter.
The Seldinger method was used for introduction from the right femoral arterial access site under local anesthesia.
In all patients, a right femoral approach was preferred for access with Seldinger method. After a 7F sheath introducer was placed, a 7F double curve renal guiding cathether was introduced via a 0.018 guidewire.
