Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To elucidate the key points for safe performance of transradial angiography.

CONCLUSIONS:

Transradial angiography can be performed safely if attention is paid to the following points from after radial artery puncture to reaching the aortic arch: resistance during guide wire operation for sheath insertion after puncture; confirmation of the superficial brachial artery; guide wire resistance while guiding the catheter to the aortic arch; and aortic arch anomalies.

KEYWORDS:

Aortic arch anomalies; Radial artery; Superficial brachial artery; Transradial angiography
