Ipsilateral Ulnar Compression Significantly Reduces Risk of Radial Artery Occlusion After Transradial PCI

from TCTMD

Compressing the ulnar artery in addition to standard patent hemostasis significantly lowers the risk of radial artery occlusion after a transradial-access coronary intervention, a new study shows. In a trial of 3,000 patients undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization, the 30-day incidence of radial-artery occlusion was 0.9 percent among those randomized to prophylactic ipsilateral ulnar compression and standard hemostasis and 3.0 percent among patients treated with standard hemostasis alone. more
