The transradial approach for coronary diagnostic and therapeutic interventions is a well-established, safe, and effective technique that has shown a success rate comparable to that of the transfemoral approach for chronic total occlusion (CTO) with less access site complications. Recently, the transulnar approach was also found to be a safe and feasible alternative for diagnostic and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). There is limited data on the efficacy and safety of the transulnar… CONTINUE READING
