Radial Access

This channel includes news, techniques and new technology innovations for radial access, also called transradial access or radial artery access. This concerns the location of introducer sheaths and vascular access for interventional procedures. Radial access is supported to result in fewer complications compared to femoral access.

Ferdinand Kiemeneij, M.D., explains the history of the transradial access during an interview with DAIC at TCT 2017.
