R.A.V.I. - Radial Access for Visceral Intervention
Radial access for visceral intervention (R.A.V.I.) brings various benefits over Transfemoral Artery Access (TFA), including reduced bleeding complications, easy access site management, improved patient satisfaction and the opportunity for same day discharge.Terumo offers various access devices and embolic agents for R.A.V.I.. 1-7
