  • Anatomic variations of the radial artery and their effect on the use of the radial artery as a route for transradial coronary intervention (TRI) were studied. Ultrasonography of the radial artery was performed prospectively in 115 patients selected to undergo elective TRI. Anatomic variations were observed in 11 of 115 patients (9.6%). Variations included six tortuous configurations (5.2%), two stenoses (1.7%), two hypoplasias (1.7%), and one radioulnar loop (0.9%). The hypoplastic radial… CONTINUE READING
