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 spasm. Patients undergoing cardiac catheterization via the radial artery will be randomized to topical nitroglycerin + lidocaine versus placebo.

The radial artery, which is located on the outer side of the forearm, can be used in interventional procedures, such as cardiac catheterization, to provide access to the arterial blood sup...
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...
The purpose of this study is to collect data about the efficacy of utilizing distal topical heat application for dilatation of the radial artery. Transradial arterial access is widely acce...
This study is being done to determine if lidocaine, administered during surgery and for 24 hours after surgery can reduce inflammation, thereby reducing the risk of atrial fibrillation and...
The aim of this study is to find out and record the indications for diagnostic catheterization as well as for interventional cardiac catheterization in A.U.C.H , and record the outcome in ...
Ischemic stroke is the most common neurological complication of cardiac catheterization resulting in a high morbidity and mortality. We present a 44-year-old man admitted for vasospastic angina that s...
Intranasal lidocaine has been studied and recommended as an alternative in the management of acute headache. The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intranas...
This study evaluates the analgesic efficacy and emotional response of intravenous lidocaine infusion compared with placebo in patients with postherpetic neuralgia(PHN).

Right atrial pressure (RAP), a representative parameter of right heart failure, is very important for prognostic evaluation and risk assessment in pulmonary hypertension. However, its measurement requ...
Procedures in which placement of CARDIAC CATHETERS is performed for therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.
A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.
The pressure within a CARDIAC VENTRICLE. Ventricular pressure waveforms can be measured in the beating heart by catheterization or estimated using imaging techniques (e.g., DOPPLER ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY). The information is useful in evaluating the function of the MYOCARDIUM; CARDIAC VALVES; and PERICARDIUM, particularly with simultaneous measurement of other (e.g., aortic or atrial) pressures.
Imaging of a ventricle of the heart after the injection of a radioactive contrast medium. The technique is less invasive than cardiac catheterization and is used to assess ventricular function.
Procedure which includes placement of catheter, recording of intracardiac and intravascular pressure, obtaining blood samples for chemical analysis, and cardiac output measurement, etc. Specific angiographic injection techniques are also involved.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
