Pediheart Podcast #117: Novel Radial Sheaths With Large ID And Small OD For Pediatric Femoral Catheterization

0 0 9 months ago
This week we review a recent work from the team at Mercy Children's on the variability of sheath outer diameter (OD) amongst various sheaths. Can novel 4Fr adult radial sheaths have similar OD to more standard 3.3Fr pediatric sheaths? What are the trade-offs in using a radial sheath for this indication in a newborn? Senior author Dr. Abhay Divekar of Rocky Mountain Pediatric Cardiology shares his insights this week. doi: 10.1002/ccd.28825
