Abstract

We compared coronary angiography of the radial artery using 6Fr catheters in 116 patients with that of the femoral artery in 100 case controls. We showed that transradial coronary angiography offers a useful alternative to the femoral route and can be performed without resorting to 5Fr catheters.
