SAAL-ZAPATA, Giancarlo; VARGAS-URBINA, John; DURAND-CASTRO, Walter  and  RODRIGUEZ-VARELA, Rodolfo. Transradial approach for diagnostic cerebral angiography: first experience in a social security hospital. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.1, pp.58-63.  Epub May 23, 2021. ISSN 1728-5917.

The transradial approach for diagnostic cerebral angiography is aiming to become the standard technique in the neuroendovascular field for both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Some characteristics for this approach include less complications, shorter hospital stay and more comfort for patients. However, transitioning from the classical femoral approach to the radial approach is difficult to achieve in facilities with well-established protocols. We report our initial experience using the transradial approach for diagnostic cerebral angiography, where all supraaortic blood vessels were successfully catheterized.

Keywords : transradial; angiography; radial artery.
