Urgence and Purpose: U2014 Radial artery catheterization is an alternative route of access that has begun to gain greater use for neuroendovascular procedures, but there have been no studies that demonstrate its safety and effectiveness. U2014 Methods u2014 We conducted a retrospective review and found 223 patients who underwent 233 consecutive neurovascular procedures at our hospital, including radial artery access. We identified a subset of 98 patients who have undergone both transradial and transfemoral angiograms as well as comparison clinical results and patient satisfaction between the two groups, as well as patient satisfaction scores. There were no instances of iatrogenic disorders in Peri-Procedurally, but only 2 patients developed symptomatic radial artery spasm, and there were no reports of iatrogenic disorders. Patients overall reported shorter recovery times with transradial access, and the overwhelming majority of patients would opt for repeat procedures by this method. Patients prefer transradial over transfemoral access over transfemoral access on the whole.
