Technique for vascular access:The true Seldinger technique is not used for percutaneous puncture into vessels.

Vascular SheathPercutaneous introduction and then the use of an indwelling vascular sheath in vessels is the standard technique for catheterization of pediatric and congenital heart patients. Ideal sheath should have:Dilator long, fine and smoothly tapered tip. inner lumen of the dilator tip should tightly fit over the guide wire tip of the dilator should have a smooth, fine transitional taper onto the surface of the wire. female Lure lock connecting hub at the proximal end back-bleed valveLateral tube / flush port

Vascular Sheath

When introduced from the inguinal area, the sheath should be long enough to extend into the common iliac vein.

In small infants a sheath into the femoral vein should extend proximal to the formation of the inferior vena cava.
