Novel treatment of severe radial artery spasm using "homemade sheathless technique": A case report.

Transradial access (TRA) is common for cardiac catheterization, but radial artery spasm (RAS) is suggested to be highlighted. Severe radical artery spasm could be solved by a relative novel approach c...

The impact of intraday glucose variability on coronary artery spasm in patients with dysglycemia.

Impaired glucose metabolism is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular complications, and coronary artery spasm is thought to underlie the development of coronary artery disease. Intraday ...

Randomized clinical study on radial artery compression time after elective coronary angiography.

to compare two compression times of the radial artery after coronary angiography with customized compressive dressing regarding the occurrence of hemostasis and vascular complications.

Distal Radial Artery Access in the Anatomical Snuffbox for Neurointerventions: Case Report.

The distal transradial approach (dTRA) is being widely adopted by interventional cardiologists, primarily due to reduced morbidity and mortality from access site complications. The distal radial arter...

Pedal access: Put the "pedal to the metal" or drive with caution?

Pedal artery access is associated with few acute complications. Pedal access differs from radial access by often being and associated with the atherosclerotic process being treated. Long-term patency ...

Radial Artery Spasm Leading to Occlusion in Patients Undergoing Coronary Angiogram Via Radial Access

Radial artery access is increasingly becoming popular among interventional cardiologists for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)/ diagnostic angiography secondary t...

Effect of Topical Anesthesia on Patient's Pain Discomfort and Radial Artery Spasm in Transradial Catheterization

This study evaluate topical anaesthesia application for 30 minutes before tranradial catheterization during cardiac catheterization can reduce pain and decrease radial artery spasm

Prevention of Radial Artery Occlusion After Trans-radial Cardiac Catheterization

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...

Topical Radial Artery Vasodilation

The aim of the study is to facilitate radial artery access for cardiac catheterization. The investigators hypothesize that topical nitroglycerin and lidocaine will reduce radial artery spa...

Observational Study of Hand Function After Distal Transradial Access for Angiography

Traditionally, coronary angiograms are performed through the radial artery which is accessed above the palm of the 'right' hand. In recent years, some cardiologists are performing this pro...

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.

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

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.

Endovascular reconstruction of an artery, which may include the removal of atheromatous plaque and/or the endothelial lining as well as simple dilatation. These are procedures performed by catheterization. When reconstruction of an artery is performed surgically, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

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.
