Figure 2: Schematic illustration of steps for negotiating “acute take off” left circumflex artery using dual-lumen microcatheter. (a) The dual lumen microcatheter through its central monorail port advanced over the hydrophilic guidewire Sion (Asahi Intecc) in the ramus. (b) Positioning of microcatheter in such a way that the over the wire exit port faces towards LCX ostium. (c) Successful crossing of LCX lesion with hydrophilic polymer coated coronary guide wire Fielder (Asahi Intecc) through over the wire lumen after giving proximal >90° ;curve to its tip. (LCX: Left circumflex artery)
