Vascular Disease Management
Every type of access has advantages as well as disadvantages. Understanding where problems arise with each site of access is paramount in avoiding complications. The “Thirteen Steps to Avoid Radial Artery Access Complications in Peripheral Interventions” is meant to serve as a practical guide for those who are incorporating radial artery access into their practice.
This article debates whether or not Dr. Sven-Ivar Seldinger’s 1953 article,“Catheter Replacement of the Needle in Percutaneous Arteriography”, published in Acta Raliologica, describes a single-wall or double-wall arterial puncture in obtaining arterial access.
This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of transradial (TR) access (MáLEI: Minimal Arterial Access Lower Extremity Intervention) compared with transfemoral (TF) access in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
As the advancements of catheter-based technology continue to evolve, the use of large bore access is growing to accommodate different procedures. In doing so, it cannot go unspoken that the operator must recognize the burden of postprocedural vascular access closure complications and their burden on the hospital, the patient, and the cost of care.
