WHAT IS CLAIMED:

1. An apparatus for performing a medical procedure, comprising:

a catheter including a tubular body having a plurality of markings indicative of a distance to an end portion of the catheter; and

an indicator repositionable on the tubular body to indicate a location of at least one of the plurality of markings.

2. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the indicator comprises a collar movably positioned on the tubular body.

3. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the indicator comprises a body including a releasable clamp for clamping the body onto the catheter.

4. The apparatus of claim 3, wherein the body includes two portions connected by a hinge.

5. The apparatus of any of the foregoing claims, wherein the indicator includes a compliant inner material.

6. The apparatus of any of the foregoing claims, wherein the indicator only partially surrounds the tubular body of the catheter.

7. The apparatus of any of claims 1-6, further including an introducer having an entrance for receiving the catheter, the indicator having an outer diameter greater than a diameter of the entrance.

8. The apparatus of any of claims 1-6, wherein the catheter includes a balloon adjacent to a distal tip, and wherein each of the plurality of markings is indicative of a distance corresponding to either a part of the balloon or the distal tip.

9. The apparatus of any of claims 1-6, wherein the indicator comprises a magnifier.

10. An apparatus for performing a medical procedure, comprising:

a catheter including a tubular body having at least one indicia; and

a magnifier connected to the tubular body for magnifying the at least one indicia.

11. The apparatus of claim 10, wherein the magnifier comprises a collar movably positioned on the tubular body.

12. The apparatus of claim 11, wherein the collar comprises a body including a clamp.

13. The apparatus of claim 12, wherein the body includes two portions connected by a hinge.

14. The apparatus of claim 12 or claim 13, wherein the body includes a compliant inner material.

15. The apparatus of any of claims 10-14, wherein the indicia comprises a number.

16. An indicator for a catheter having a marking, comprising:

a tubular body including a releasable clamp for securing the tubular body to the catheter, the body comprising a magnifier for magnifying the marking of the catheter.

17. The indicator of claim 16, wherein the tubular body comprises first and second portions connected by a hinge at one end and the releasable clamp at the other end.

18. The indicator of claim 16 or claim 17, wherein the tubular body includes a compliant inner material.

19. A kit, comprising:

a first catheter including a first repositionable indicator to indicate a first position on the first catheter; and

a second catheter including a second repositionable indicator to indicate a second position on the second catheter corresponding to the first position.

20. The kit of claim 19, wherein at least one of the first movable indicator and the second movable indicator includes a magnifier.

21. The kit of claim 19, wherein at least one of the first catheter and the second catheter has a tubular body supporting a balloon.

22. The kit of claim 19, wherein the first and second catheter include a proximal end portion having plurality of matched markings indicating a distance to a distal end portion of the catheter.
