Abstract

A sterile inflammatory reaction at the radial access site has been described in the literature as an adverse local reaction to Cook hydrophilic coated sheaths during transradial catheterization. To date, this reaction has not been observed with non-Cook hydrophilic sheaths. Here, we describe two cases of such a reaction with Glidesheaths™ at our institution.
