Most of the cases when we see a severe tortuosity in the right iliac,we can access using the left side,specially in elderly population and hipertensive patients,anyway is good to know new options.

In my humble experience when the first approach described fails one should try a Lunderquist guidewire and you will most probably succeed in maneuvering the catheters without a second sheet.
It caught my attention a lunderquist wire was not used in any case.
Anyway it is good to see other options.
