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.

Vascular Solutions recently announced it is now the exclusive distributor of the R-Band radial hemostasis compression device in the United States under an agreement with Lepu Medical Technology (Beijing) Co. Ltd., developer and manufacturer of the device. The R-Band, which has FDA 510(k) clearance, is a radial compression device to achieve hemostasis following transradial diagnostic and interventional catheterization procedures.
