Abstract

Transradial access for cardiac intervention results in lower rates of access site complications and major bleeding events in comparison to transfemoral access, with an associated reduction in all-cause mortality, morbidity and length of hospital stay [1]. Recent advances in low-profile access sheaths and neurospecific guide catheters have led to a surge of interest in transradial access for neurointerventions; however,rates of radial access site complications following neurointerventional procedures are yet to be defined. This article describes the radial artery access and closure techniques and provides data prospectively collected on radial access complications from over 750 consecutive transradial cases at a high volume neurointerventional center.
