Transradial catheterisation to access and treat blocked arteries, via the radial artery in the wrist, offers significant benefits over traditional methods.
By accessing a patient’s coronary system this way, there is reduced pain level, much lower risk, and typically much less bleeding and related mortality. The forearm artery does not transport a particularly large volume of blood and it is located conveniently near to the surface.
The advantages of this method over transfemoral approaches via the groin have become clearer to clinicians and patients.
