Radial Versus Femoral Arterial Access for Cardiac Catheterization: Comparison of Complications at 30 Days

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Cardiac catheterization has traditionally been performed via access to the arterial circulation from the femoral artery located in the groin. As an alternative to this approach, the radial artery, located in the arm, is gaining wider use in clinical practice. Multiple studies have demonstrated that cardiac catheterization via the radial approach has a very low complication rate, in the short term. This study is intended to determine if there are any differences in the long term complication rate between radial artery cardiac catheterization as compared with femoral artery cardiac catheterization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.
