The radial approach to cardiac procedures has become increasingly common. While previous studies have suggested a favorable risk profile, serious complications can occur. The purpose of this study was to examine the incidence, subsequent treatment and outcome of all suspected significant neurovascular complications following trans-radial cardiac procedures at a large US hospital.

Prosthesis is a wearable device which intends to provide the functionality and/or appearance of a missing body part. In the case of trans-radial prostheses the wearer or the trans-radial amputee is fi...
To date, only a few studies have compared radial head prostheses (RHP) and their different anchoring principles. The aim of this study was to characterize concomitant injuries, necessary adjuvant proc...
We retrospectively evaluated the efficacy and safety of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) combined with trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE) as initial therapy in Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer ...
Sweden ranks low in an international comparison of consultations per doctor. This has several structural reasons. Compared to other countries Sweden reports nearly all physicians, including residents ...
Well-functioning physician-patient communication is central to primary care consultations. An increasing demand on primary care in many countries to manage a culturally diverse population has highligh...
Critically ill patients in the emergency department commonly require arterial line placement for continuous direct blood pressure monitoring, frequent arterial blood gas sampling, and freq...
Clinicians are increasingly dealing with morbid obese patients. In morbid obese patients, difficult sampling and problems encountered with noninvasive blood pressure monitoring makes arter...
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 radia...
The purpose of the study is to compare different short durations of radial clamp application following an angiogram via a trans-radial approach.
Randomized trial comparing uterine fibroid embolization patient satisfaction and quality of life with femoral versus radial arterial access
Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.
A procedure to surgically correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS by cutting radial slits into the CORNEA to change its refractive properties.
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
A major nerve of the upper extremity. In humans the fibers of the radial nerve originate in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spinal cord (usually C5 to T1), travel via the posterior cord of the brachial plexus, and supply motor innervation to extensor muscles of the arm and cutaneous sensory fibers to extensor regions of the arm and hand.
