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.

Radial artery access is increasingly becoming popular among interventional cardiologists for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)/ diagnostic angiography secondary t...
The study will evaluate the feasibility and safety of radial approach in patients undergoing coronary catheterisation without any restrictions based on the results of Allen's test.
Several approaches have been proposed to reduce the risk of RAO, including anticoagulation, immediate postprocedural sheath removal, and a small sheath/radial artery ratio. Doppler ultraso...
Data from literature: transradial access failure sometimes occurs due to inability to cannulate the radial artery due to radial artery spasm1 causing severe difficulties in manipulation of...
The radial approach for a coronary angiography has became popular in several centers because of its simplicity and fewer complications. The radial artery occlusion (RAO) is the main inconv...
Occlusion of the internal iliac artery (IIA) may be necessary prior to endovascular aortoiliac aneurysm repair (EVAR) to prevent endoleak type II. We compared efficacy and clinical outcome after proxi...
The objective of this systematic review is to synthesize the best available research evidence related to the effects of methods used to achieve hemostasis on radial artery occlusion (RAO) rates, follo...
Endovascular therapy (EVT) with stent retrievers in addition to i.v. thrombolysis (IVT) has proven effective in acute stroke patients with middle cerebral artery (MCA, M1 segment) and distal internal ...
Aneurysms arising from the distal anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) are very rare. When the parent artery is an AICA-posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) variant, occlusion of the arte...
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.
