Sirens song or a bugle call to charge

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Radial access for catheterization is associated with reduced bleeding and mortality across a spectrum of clinical conditions compared to femoral. Transradial technique is associated with a higher rate of access site failure but this is in those most likely to have a femoral-based complication. Improved outcomes will come with further radial technique refinement and not with a retreat to legacy femoral approaches.
