A curved, tapered, solid-core, movable J guide wire was developed for use in percutaneous transfemoral pulmonary angiography. The guide wire was used in 30 patients and, compared with other techniques, greatly reduced the time required to pass the catheter through the right side of the heart. No complications occurred, and only occasional premature ventricular contractions were detected.
