An introducer-sheath dilator is described, which was modified to protect the leading lip of the sheath during insertion, thus reducing arterial damage. The new sheath and a standard sheath were inserted into the femoral arteries of six dogs. Subsequent histologic examination of the arteries proved the new sheath to be both safe and effective.
