Abstract

In the early 1950s, Dr. Sven Seldinger revolutionized medicine when he described his percutaneous vascular access technique. This technique has led to the development of highly specialized physicians in many fields including radiology, cardiology, and vascular surgery. Utilizing this method, physicians are able to percutaneously treat pathologies that were previously only treated through open techniques. Though the percutaneous access has expanded through the past 60 plus years with the development of vascular and non-vascular procedures, the original concept has remained the same: needle, wire, and catheter. This chapter covers a selection of the most commonly used devices; however, there are numerous additional tools that are not mentioned as well as new devices being developed every day.
