A Tortuous Path

An image can be worth a thousand words. In this course, we review an image of a right coronary catheter accessing the aorta via a right radial artery approach and discuss issues, concerns, and potential solutions for radial artery catheterization.

You will learn:

  • To correctly interpret the path taken by coronary catheters accessing the central circulation from a radial artery approach.
  • To list the advantages and disadvantages of radial artery catheterization
  • To determine when a coronary angiogram is adequate or alternate approaches need to be taken to obtain adequate coronary angiograms.
