In vitro studies have shown a reduction in radial artery spasm with the use of calcium antagonists. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of topical treatment of the radial artery conduit using either verapamil or nicardipine before the anastomoses.

The debate on the second best conduit for CABG is still intense. In this review, we discuss the role of the radial artery and the right internal thoracic artery (RITA) compared with saphenous vein gra...
In percutaneous coronary interventions, use of the radial artery may be limited by vascular anatomy or vascular complications, such as radial artery spasm, dissection or perforation. The balloon-assis...
Coronary artery spasm (CAS) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is rare, and in time may be fatal for the patient if undiagnosed. The purpose of the present study is to report the case of a p...
To explore the short-term outcomes of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) who underwent coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) with sequential radial artery graft. Clinical data of patients with...
Radial artery access is increasingly becoming popular among interventional cardiologists for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)/ diagnostic angiography secondary t...
This study evaluate topical anaesthesia application for 30 minutes before tranradial catheterization during cardiac catheterization can reduce pain and decrease radial artery spasm
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 Distal Radial Access (DRA) to the coronaries has emerged recently. It's done via the distal radial artery in the radial fossa, which is known as the snuff-box. The rationale of conduct...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive endoscopic harvest of the radial artery to the conventional open method of radial artery harvest ...
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
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.
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.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
