Transradial coronary procedures are gaining in popularity worldwide. A possible complication of transradial approach is the occlusion of the radial artery that in most cases is asymptomatic. However the investigators do not know if the radial artery occlusion may impact over the muscle force of the hand or fingers.
To evaluate if transradial approach for percutaneous coronary procedures may affect muscle force of the hand, thumb and index finger the investigators use a standardized hand-grip manometer and a pinch gauge before the transradial procedure, the day after the procedures and after few months.

Radial artery access is increasingly becoming popular among interventional cardiologists for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)/ diagnostic angiography secondary t...
Coronary angiography is performed to evaluate for obstructive coronary artery disease. This is commonly performed via the transfemoral or transradial approach with the latter increasing in...
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...
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...
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...
To evaluate the feasibility to treat complex internal carotid aneurysms by superficial temporal artery trunk-radial artery-middle cerebral artery (STAT-RA-MCA) bypass combined with balloon occlusion o...
To explore the use of prolonged occlusion flow mediated dilatation (PO-FMD) to dilate the radial artery prior to cannulation to increase cannulation success, reduce puncture attempts and reduce access...
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 con...
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...
Common carotid artery occlusion (CCA-occlusion) is a rare condition where standard revascularization is not feasible. Here, we analyzed our experience with surgical revascularization of CCA-occlusion ...
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.
Splitting of the vessel wall in the VERTEBRAL ARTERY. Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the vertebral artery, aneurysm formation, or THROMBOEMBOLISM. Vertebral artery dissection is often associated with TRAUMA and injuries to the head-neck region but can occur spontaneously.
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.
