Benefit of TRI
While transfemoral approach had historically been the standard access point for most cardiac catheterizations, adoption of transradial approach has increased as it is associated with better patient outcomes and reduction in bleeding complications. Click below to see more.
TRI X TIS History
Terumo was one of the first companies to offer training and education programs for radial access. Click below to see more on Terumo’s contribution to transradial intervention.
