I'm finding none of these. The procedure is an "endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm using a bifurcated cook graft with bilateral iliac extensions."

This thing is mentioned many times, but here's context for you:

"We did place also in a similar fashion a wire and a 7-French sheath on the left side. The pigtail was moved to that side and then we exchanged the Glidewire over a **K&P** catheter. We exchanged it with a **mandecore** super-stiff wire, which drained up the iliac to us. The iliacs were very tortuous bilaterally."

Thanks for reading this!!
