Primary Outcome Measures
Forearm radial artery occlusion (RAO) rate before discharge
[Time Frame: up to 5 days] Forearm radial artery occlusion (RAO) rate before discharge measured with Doppler Ultrasound
Primary endpoint result: RAO at discharge
Exceptionally low incidence of RAO at discharge in both groups, the lowest ever reported in any multicenter TRA trial. Those results support clinical application of best practice recommendations for the reduction of RAO.
Patent hemostasis was achieved in 94.4% of patient in the TRA group.
Secondary endpoint result
support distal radial access as a valid alternative to conventional radial access, with simpler & shorter hemostasis.
equally low forearm RAO rates with conventional & distal radial access, highlighting the importance and clinical benefits of a rigorous protocol for RAO prevention.
Glidesheath Slender™ to apply lower-profile system necessary to complete the procedure.
TR Band™ to achieve patent hemostasis, with minimal pressure strategy together with short hemostasis time.
