Seldinger technique

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 A needle is used to puncture the structure and a guide wire is threaded through the needle; when the needle is withdrawn, a catheter is threaded over the wire; the wire is then withdrawn, leaving the catheter in place.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are passed over the guidewire, as in chest drains or nephrostomies); after passing a sheath of tube, the guidewire is withdrawn.

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cavity: a needle is used to puncture the structure and a guide wire is threaded through the needle; when the needle is withdrawn, a catheter is threaded over the wire; the wire is then withdrawn, leaving the catheter in place.

Other POWERWAND/Accelerated Seldinger Technique benefits include:
A 6F sheath was placed inside the ulnar artery as per standard Seldinger technique, and cardiac catheterization or angioplasty was performed.
The Seldinger technique can also be used with the appropriate cannula.
The power-injectable catheter is delivered by means of The WAND's[R] proprietary Accelerated Seldinger Technique, which also protects healthcare workers from dangerous accidental needlesticks.
