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 radial artery, located in the arm, is gaining wider use in clinical practice. Multiple studies have demonstrated that cardiac catheterization via the radial approach has a very low complication rate, in the short term. This study is intended to determine if there are any differences in the long term complication rate between radial artery cardiac catheterization as compared with femoral artery cardiac catheterization.

In this study, the investigators will investigate how patients' radial artery diameters change according to sex, age, height, weight and body mass index by measuring radial artery diameter...
Radial artery access is increasingly becoming popular among interventional cardiologists for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention(PCI)/ diagnostic angiography secondary t...
The study will evaluate the feasibility and safety of radial approach in patients undergoing coronary catheterisation without any restrictions based on the results of Allen's test.
Several approaches have been proposed to reduce the risk of RAO, including anticoagulation, immediate postprocedural sheath removal, and a small sheath/radial artery ratio. Doppler ultraso...
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...
Variations in the branching pattern of brachial artery and abnormal course of its branches are not uncommon. The present article describes a case of bifurcation of the brachial artery into a common ra...
A Randomized Comparison of Incidence of Radial Artery Occlusion and Symptomatic Radial Artery Spasm Associated with Elective Transradial Coronary Intervention Using 6.5-Fr Sheathless Eaucath Guiding Catheter vs. 6.0-Fr Glidesheath Slender.
To compare incidences of radial artery occlusion (RAO) and spasm (RAS) associated with transradial coronary intervention (TRI) using 6.5-Fr Sheathless hydrophilic-coated guide catheter (SH-GC) vs. 6.0...
Distal transradial access in the anatomical snuffbox has advantages over standard access in terms of patient and operator comfort levels and risk of ischemia. Radial artery preservation could be a rel...
We previously reported safety and usefulness of transradial iliac artery stenting using 6 Fr guiding sheath. However, radial artery occlusion was a major limitation of this procedure. We analyzed the...
The current literature on radial artery grafting is reviewed focusing on the optimal deployment of radial artery grafts in coronary artery bypass surgery with specific attention to the selection of pa...
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.
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.
The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.
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.
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.
